The year 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the Rome Statute that led to the establishment of the International Criminal Court in 2002. Although initially carried into existence on a wave of humanitarian enthusiasm, the ICC has been highly controversial more or less from the beginning. One of the key battlegrounds in this longstanding dispute over the Court’s legitimacy has been the issue of deterrence. The conjecture that a properly structured and functioning ICC would be able to deter mass atrocities has always figured prominently among the Court’s proponents.

By establishing permanent dialogue between governments and trying to promote cooperative relations between peoples at a global level, intergovernmental organizations are a fundamental new element of global politics in the contemporary era.
