So far, the so‐called ‘general part’ of international criminal law has been only partially codified. This paper discusses the need for, and the challenges of, establishing such a ‘general part’, especially regarding issues such as jurisdiction, the principle of legality, modalities of participation in the commission of crimes, various aspects of mens rea, justifications, excuses, and so on. It outlines areas where international criminal justice has made progress. Furthermore, it pays particular attention to the dynamic between the international and national criminal justice systems in attaining solutions to these questions.
