Description Sovereignty and Justice de Mark S. Ellis:

The drafters of the ICC's founding document, the Rome Statute, foresaw what would become the main challenge to the Court's legitimacy: that it could violate national sovereignty. To address this concern, the drafters added the principle of complementarity to the ICC's jurisdiction, in that the Court's province merely complements the exercise of jurisdiction by the domestic courts of the Statute's member states. The ICC honours the authority of those states to conduct their own trials. This book asserts that the principle of complementarity, both dynamic and powerful, is the key legal underpinning for domestic jurisdiction of international crimes, and has been the impetus for the rise of a new trend toward domestic war crimes prosecutions. However, if the principle of complementarity is to be applied, states must ensure that their own judicial systems and trials are consistent with international standards of independence and fairness. At a minimum, states will have to adhere to standards of due process found in international human rights instruments. In addition, for complementarity to work, the ICC must be willing to actively support, embrace, and implement the principle. If the Court holds on too tightly to a self-aggrandising view of its role in promoting international justice, then it will lose all credibility in the eyes of nation states. Finally, the international community, in calling on states to address war crimes committed within their borders, must provide some of the financial, technical, and professional resources that many struggling states need in this endeavour. This book sets forth several innovative recommendations to fulfil these goals in order to strengthen and unify the principle of complementarity between the ICC and nation states so as to make future domestic war crimes courts work more effectively. Mark Ellis is Executive Director of the International Bar Association (IBA), the foremost international organization of bar associations, law firms and individual lawyers in the world. Dr Ellis has published extensively in the area of international law, and his op-eds have appeared in The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, and The Times.

He was actively involved with the Iraqi High Tribunal, and is a member of the Disciplinary Advisory Panel to the Defense Counsel for the ICTY and ICTR. Twice a Fulbright Scholar at the Ekonomski Institute in Zagreb, Croatia, he earned his J.D. and B.S. (Economics) degrees from Florida State University and his PhD in Law from King's College, London.
