In comprehension of the study, literature on the specific aims was reviewed from previous writers. The study considered findings indicated that, the International Criminal Court generally has no executive powers and no police force of its own; it depends on full, effective and timely cooperation in totality from state parties and the study further indicated that the International Criminal Court is an unwanted guest in Northern Uganda although the attempt of the International Criminal Court has been successful where other attempts have failed. The study concluded that, the role of International Criminal Court in resolving and ending world crises can be done to accommodate the need for peace with demands of justice as reference was further made to the Holy Bible, however difficult choices have to be made about how to balance the need for peace a midst the call for justice. The study recommended that in ensuring the credibility of the International Criminal Court, it must secure conviction, the government of Uganda and the International Criminal Court should adequately coordinate with the war crimes division of the High Court of Uganda, prosecution by the International Criminal Court is one of the few credible threats faced by the leaders of the warring states and that impunity should always be a last resort.
