The permanent International Criminal Court has finally become a reality. The looming of the Review Conference of the Rome Statute, as it is to take place in mid 2010, presents a welcome opportunity to reflect upon the shortcomings as they permeate the Rome Statute in particular and the future of International Criminal Court in general. The Review Conference calls upon state parties, the international criminal legal staff and academics alike to identify un- or underdeterminate positive norms and regulations and to produce doctrinally sound, politically feasible and practically manageable international criminal law in books and in action: be it within substantive international criminal law, be it within international criminal procedure, or be it within the interplay between national and international jurisdictions.
This became reality in the highly successful First AIDPYoung Penalists’ Symposium: Dozens of senior and young penalists, from Brazil to Japan, with an international or a domestic background, pursuing either the academic career or practicing criminal law as prosecutors or defense counsel, convened in Tuebingen, Germany, from 1 to 4 April 2008 to discuss the upcoming Review Conference and the Future of the International Criminal Court’ as well as proposals for legislative or adjudicative reform. This volume contains most of the presentations as they were given during the symposium.
