An approach to the meaning of Peace and Justice as seen from the perspective of the International Criminal Court. Once the International Criminal Court has started to operate in 2002, we have seen a remarkable reconciliation amongst peace and security and global justice. As the I.C.C. is an autonomous and legal establishment, we cannot talk at first sight about the interests of peace, which is the order of different organizations, for example, the United Nations Security Council. The problematic of discussion about peace versus equity or peace over equity is an evidently false decision. Peace and equity are two sides of a similar coin. The way to peace ought to be viewed as running by means of equity, and in this manner peace and equity can be pursued after at the same time. The International Criminal Court comes a bit nearer to examining war crimes in Afghanistan. The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Fatou Bensouda, declared on November 3, 2017 that she has chosen to ask for approval to examine violations perpetrated regarding the armed conflict in Afghanistan. What does this mean in terms of choosing global peace ?
