Nomos and Narrative in International Criminal Justice: Creating the International Criminal Court

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


This article draws on Robert Cover's narrative law to analyse which kind of court states advocated during the process of negotiating and discussing the Rome Statute, 1993-1998. It presents a set of surprising findings from the global analysis of statements by 129 participating states from all regions. These findings contest the dominant narrative of ICC creation centring on the Like-Minded States. The article is currently under review.
