Abstract: This study chronicles the participation of Great Britain and Germany in the international criminal legal system from the post-World War II trials at Nuremberg and Tokyo through the two ad hoc tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. Finally, it focuses on British and German debates at the Rome Conference and in their respective parliaments, which led to each government's decision to ratify the Rome Statute and join the International Criminal Court. The two nations' converging paths highlight a greater movement among the international community as a whole towards recognizing the necessity of an independent legal body that is able to hold accountable those who commit the most serious of crimes.
