Abstract:     
The exact definition of an "unwilling or unable" state or jurisdiction under the International Criminal Court Statute, which is crucial to the functioning of complementarity, remains elusive. This article proposes to explore the nineteenth and early twentieth century origins of "denial of justice" under international law theories as an early and illuminating analog for the dilemmas of complementarity. It finds that the ICC could learn a lot from engagement with this rich case law which of state responsibility and exceptions to the rule of exhaustion of local remedies.
