Abstract:     
This paper examines a shift in the focus of the crime of aggression from the state to the individual as the principal subject of the use of force regime. The political and military leaders will be held accountable for planning, preparing, initiating or waging illegal wars. After discussing each of the three components identified in the definition of the crime of aggression, the state/collective act of aggression, the link between the individual leader and the state/collective act, and the jurisdictional trigger, this paper then focuses on the significance of the crime of aggression for Jus ad Bellum.
