Regional Systems in Pursuing International Criminal Justice: An Examination of the African Court of Justice and Human Rights

 Introduction

It has been more than thirteen years since the International Criminal Court was established and started its operation on most serious crimes of international concern, namely Genocide, crime against humanity, crimes of war and aggression. The Court was established by virtue of the Rome statute as a permanent international criminal tribunal independent from other United Nations bodies.

African countries generally have cooperated in the early stages of the establishment of ICC.
