The ICC Prosecutor's discretionary resolve in Uganda, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the Central African Republic has exposed many nuanced dimensions of classical and positive forms of complementarity. This concluding chapter explores this trend in terms of the complex challenges of reconciling peace and justice, and in terms of the parameters and implications of two thematic issues: the global deterrent effect and global terrorism. It argues that the complex design of the ICC, while underscoring many significant legal and political challenges of extending global governance, also reveals the Court's potential responsiveness to, or positive role in addressing global security problems.

Keywords: global deterrent effect; peace; justice; security; global terrorism
