Codify Crimes Against Humanity to End the Era of Impunity of Perpetrators of Mass

 Atrocities Introduction Global governance hinges on cooperation and collaboration between states to tackle international problems that cannot be managed by nation states alone. International law can be considered the vehicle to achieve this coordination between states. Strengthening these norms can increase the impact global governance mechanisms have in dealing with increasingly complex challenges. As human rights are under attack at every level across the world, one of the biggest problems the global community faces must address right now is how to protect civilian lives and hold accountable those who commit atrocities against them. This article will outline the ways a widely ratified convention on crimes against humanity can enhance the architecture for achieving global justice at the International Criminal Court, a prime example of an institution of global governance.1Part I of this article will discuss the draft convention proposed by the International Law Commission and compare it to similar conventions. Part II will highlight the ways a codified convention can weaken impunity of the perpetrators of crimes against humanity.
