Abstract:This comment articulates two arguments. First, that the Rome Statute itself creates avenues that give State parties the options to either enter peace deals or to even grant amnesties in compliance with the principles of justice. Second, that there are historical traces of the non prosecution of international crimes for the purposes of achieving a 'greater good'- the good that Uganda hopes to achieve by granting Joseph Kony and his top commanders blanket amnesty. Notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
