The people's court
Since 2002, the International Criminal Court’s chief brief has been to prosecute crimes against humanity. Focussing in particular on war crimes such as those committed by Thomas Lubanga Dyilo’s conscripting child soldiers in the Congo, outgoing Chief Prosecutor Moreno-Ocampo also deals with the thorny issue of Palestine’s statehood – and its right to appeal to the court – in this rare look at the interface of status politics and international law.
