ABSTRACT. This research makes conceptual and methodological contributions to judges’ reluctance to severely sentence convicted offenders, the ICC’s emphasis on gravity, the principle of legality in international law, and the character and content of nulla poena sine lege in international criminal justice. The purpose of this article is to gain a deeper understanding of the gravity threshold’s role as helping to ensure the ICC’s integrity, the moral legitimacy of international rules and institutions, the sentences for individuals convicted of serious crimes under a theory of superior responsibility, and the international criminal regime as a feat of the modern global order. pp. 136–141

Keywords: gravity, offence, international criminal law, ICC
