The present contribution is based on a definition of war crimes in stricto sensu: A war crime is any act, or omission, committed in an armed conflict that constitutes a serious violation of the laws and customs of international humanitarian law and has been criminalized by international treaty or customary law Humanitarian Law, International.
This definition requires at least two conditions qualifying a conduct to a war crime. First, a violation of international humanitarian law, and second, the criminalization of the conduct under treaty or customary international law Cassese  The applicability of the rules of international humanitarian law implies that a war crime must be satisfactorily connected to an armed conflict Armed Conflict international; Armed Conflict, Non-International; Belligerency.
The second condition requires that customary or international treaty law must provide legal norms entailing individual criminal responsibility for the perpetration of such a violation. While, within the classical understanding of international law, violation of its rules by State officials or individuals only engage collective State responsibility, the concept of war crimes goes beyond that principle and imposes liabilities upon individuals as well.
War crimes can be prosecuted directly by International Criminal Tribunals or indirectly by national courts. The decision depends on whether the jurisdiction of the international court is primary or complementary to national courts see International Criminal Law.
As will be shown, war crimes International responsibility and liability bibliography not only restricted to international armed conflicts, they can also be committed during non-international armed conflicts.
Historical Evolution of Legal Rules 1. The evolution of war crimes is part of the progressive development and codification of international humanitarian law by promoting individual criminal responsibility for serious violations committed under its norms.
The idea of individual criminal responsibility—that individuals under international law should be responsible for serious violations of the laws of war and not only the belligerent State—is not an invention of the 20th century; it has developed in stages and goes back to the practice of trial and punishment for those guilty of such violations in the medieval period La Haye Von Hagenbach led a regime of brutality and terror and committed numerous violent acts against the inhabitants of Breisach and neighboring territories.
A large coalition France, Bern, Austria and the towns and knights of the Upper Rhine put these atrocities to an end and installed an ad hoc tribunal consisting of 28 judges from the allies. These instructions, applicable to the Union army during the American Civil War, established the principle of individual criminal responsibility for comprehensive violations listed in the text, such as pillage, rape, or abuse of prisoners see Art.
Codified as a municipal law instrument, the prosecution of war criminals was limited to American Soldiers and only binding to them.
Prior to the 19th century, the regulation of the laws of war was a matter of national legislation Meron 1. Nonetheless, the codification had an enormous influence on the future evolution of the laws of war and the principle of criminalizing violations of the laws and customs of war.
However, they neither clarified nor limited the principle of individual criminal responsibility and focused only on the rights and obligations of States as the classical subjects of international law. However, no international tribunal was established. Instead, the allied powers relinquished their right to prosecute war criminals and accepted the compromise offered by the German government to hold the trials before the German Reich Supreme Court in Leipzig Bassiouni  34 ; Mc Cormack  In the end, only 13 proceedings against alleged war criminals reached the trial stage, nine trials came to a judgment of which none was fully executed Werle and Jessberger  4.
This disastrous beginning of the prosecution of war crimes was completed by the fact that the German Emperor was granted asylum in the Netherlands and was never held individually accountable for his acts.
Even though this finding was not entirely justified, it is beyond controversy that the testimony of the IMT constituted a crucial stepping stone in the recognition of individual criminal responsibility for war crimes committed under international law.International Responsibility and Liability- bibliography BY MBRO International Responsibility and Liability 1.
