Title: Draft Code of Crimes Against the Peace and Security of Mankind, 1996
Available From: http://untreaty.un.org/ilc/texts/instruments/english/draft%20articles/7_4_1996.pdf
Conclusion Date: 1996-07-17
Description: The 1996 Draft Code of Crimes is the result of several decades of work by the ILC since its adoption of the 1954 Draft Code of Offences Against the Peace and Security of Mankind. In addition to the text of the Draft Code, the ILC site includes an analytical guide, commentaries, and the ILC Report to the General Assembly. By Resolution, GA res. 51/160 (1996/12/16), the General Assembly drew "the attention of the States participating in the Preparatory Committee on the Establishment of an International Criminal Court to the relevance of the draft Code to their work" and requested "the Secretary-General to invite Governments to submit, before the end of the fifty-third session of the Assembly, their written comments and observations on action which might be taken in relation to the draft Code . . . ."
