Law Applicable in the International Criminal Court- Analytical Legal Study

Author(s): Zaid Ibrahim Gharaibeh

The research deals with the study of the legal rules that are applicable in the criminal court as an analytical study, as it shows the crimes that the criminal court has jurisdiction to consider, the most important of which are the crimes of international armed conflicts and non-international armed conflicts and the law applicable to them. The research also shows the idea of the principle of legality of criminalization in front of the court, and then proceeds to study the applicable law in the subjective and personal jurisdiction. The research includes a set of findings and recommendations, perhaps the most important of which is the fact that international crime is the focus of the statute of the International Criminal Court and that it is a criminal offense firstly and international secondly. The most important thing in the recommendations is the necessity that international criminal jurisdiction is not limited to international crimes mentioned in the statute of the International Criminal Court, but rather it should also cover other crimes.
