17-Point Program for a Convention on Crimes Against Humanity

In 2017 the International Law Commission provisionally approved, on first reading, the Draft Articles on crimes against humanity in view ‘of developing draft articles that might serve as the basis of an international convention on crimes against humanity’. The Draft Articles have already been transmitted to governments, international organizations and others for comments and observations by 1 December 2018. It includes 15 draft articles, a draft preamble, an annex and a General Commentary on the 15 articles. The ’17-Point Program for a Convention on Crimes against Humanity’ contains several recommendations in order to enhance the draft text, and make it a useful tool against impunity.
