According to Michael Howard (2000, p.1), war, or armed conflictbetween organised groups, ‘has been the universal norm in history’.Adopting one of the core themes of this collection, war is possibly themost established and indeed entrenched form of structural violence.And while there have always been taboos with respect to how wars arefought, punishment for violating these taboos remained inconsistent(when there was punishment at all) and characterised by so-calledvictor’s justice. Thus, the establishment of the International CriminalCourt (ICC) in 2002 represents, albeit with important limitations, acreative structural response to the challenges of long-established normsregarding the use of violence in the international realm.
