Humanitarian Action Through Legal Institutions

Michael Kearney

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In light of the turn to UN Fact-finding Missions analysing ongoing human rights abuses through the lens of international criminal law, this paper suggests, by reference to the principle found in UN General Assembly resolution 377 of 1950, that Security Council vetos precluding the referrals of abusive states to the International Criminal Court might be overcome by empowering the General Assembly to act in its place.
