"In July 1998, 160 nations decided to establish a permanent International Criminal Court to try individuals for the most serious offences of global concern, such as genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. The agreement was hailed by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan as 'a giant step forward in the march towards universal human rights and the rule of law.' But some critics think the ICC will be, at best, an ineffective body, and at worst, a dangerous threat to national sovereignty."
