Gerald and Maas began publishing the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide with primary supportive international treaties, in 1989, when it was out of print at the United Nations, and a year before the U.S. and Coalition began the invasion and destruction of Iraq (for the 1996 Canadian edition see: Common Rights & Expectations: primary international treaties protecting the rights of all people). These pages continue the concern for where humanity should draw the line to save groups of people vulnerable to those more powerful. Gerald and Maas is not: a registered NGO, part of a religious group, government funded, U.N. funded, corporately or academically funded.

The application under law of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide varies according to country and situation and degree of corporate controls. The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights   website   provides links to the texts of the United Nations human rights treaties including the Convention against Genocide. The current status of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, as of December 31, 2012, was 143 Nation States listed as Party to the Convention, including 41 as Signatories. Applicable within the law of most nations the Convention against Genocide may also be effected by the permanent International Criminal Court, empowered to deal with "the crime of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression," as "the most serious crimes of concern to the international community" (see the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court [access:"http://www.icc-cpi.int/en_menus/icc/legal%20texts%20and%20tools/Pages/legal%20tools.aspx" ]. See also: Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, treaty and ratification status, French and English [access: "http://www.icc-cpi.int/en_menus/asp/states%20parties/Pages/the%20states%20parties%20to%20the%20rome%20statute.aspx"]). By October 17, 2007, 105 countries were party to the Rome Statute as law. As of June 1, 2008, 108 Nation States were party to the Rome Statute. As of July 21, 2009, 110 Nation States were party. As of August 10, 2012, 121 Nation States were party. As of March 19, 2013, the ICC lists 122 State Parties to the Rome Statute.
