The International Criminal Court was created to help ensure that the gravest crimes in International law are punished. Its Statute was adopted by 120 countries in Rome in 1998, and the court was formally established in July 2002, when the Statute was ratified by the 60 states required. Since then, 50 more countries have ratified the Rome Statute.
