Belgium first introduced legislation on international crimes with the implementation of the Geneva Conventions and its Additional Protocols in 1993. Since then, Belgium has adopted and subsequently withdrawn controversial legislation, in particular with regard to universal jurisdiction and immunities. Belgium has a comprehensive corpus of legislation able to guarantee solid cooperation with the International Criminal Court and which enables the exercise of jurisdiction in accordance with the principle of complementarity. With regard to the crimes under ICC jurisdiction, the Belgian legislation provides much wider coverage in relation to non-international armed conflicts than the relevant Statute provisions. In respect of cooperation, Belgium has opted for direct references to the relevant Rome Statute Articles when dealing with some provisions (e.g. the rules governing competing requests) as opposed to enacting detailed domestic versions of the Statute provision itself.
