In August 2016, the International Law Commission provisionally adopted the text of the draft articles on crimes against humanity. This text makes it clear that crimes against humanity, whether or not committed in time of armed conflict, are crimes under international law, which States undertake to prevent and punish. It is the content of this general obligation that will be addressed through this presentation.
