Dapo Akende on Consent Principle in International Law

Dapo Akande, of the University of Oxford, has prepared a paper on the 'consent principle' in international law as this relates to the aggression amendments to the Rome Statute. Basing himself on earlier precedent, such as the Monetary Gold opinion of the International Court of Justice, Dr Akande argues that the consent of the aggressor State as well as the victim State will be required, unless the Review Conference is prepared to depart from a well-established principle of international law.
