As the Court develops, the current reality of this system is setting in. Many of the states over which the Court has asserted its jurisdiction are states that do not have the capacity to conduct fair national proceedings. This stands to reason as much conflict literature has identified the lack of rule of law as a cause for the commission of atrocities. Further, the Court does not have the capacity to handle but a few of the most serious cases in each situation country. What has been identified as an impunity gap is a real prospect as many national systems do not have the capacity to process international crimes committed by subordinates, where their leaders are being tried before the Court. The long term solution is clearly to develop national legal systems so that they can conduct fair and genuine trials for international crimes.
