520    This book analyses how the complementarity regime of the 
       ICC's Rome Statute can be implemented in member states, 
       specifically focusing on African states and Nigeria. 
       Complementarity is the principle that outlines the primacy
       of national courts to prosecute a defendant unless a state
       is 'unwilling' or 'genuinely unable to act', assuming the 
       crime is of a 'sufficient gravity' for the International 
       Criminal Court (ICC). It is stipulated in the Rome Statute
       without a clear and comprehensive framework for how states
       can implement it. The book proposes such a framework and 
       argues that a mutually inclusive interpretation and 
       application of complementarity would increase domestic 
       prosecutions and reduce self-referrals to the ICC. African
       states need to have an appropriate legal framework in 
       place, implementing legislation and institutional capacity
       as well as credible judiciaries to investigate and 
       prosecute international crimes. The mutually inclusive 
       interpretation of the principle of complementarity would 
       entail the ICC providing assistance to states in 
       instituting this framework while being available to fill 
       the gaps until such time as these states meet a defined 
       threshold of institutional preparedness sufficient to 
       acquire domestic prosecution. The minimum complementarity 
       threshold includes proscribing the Rome Statute crimes in 
       domestic criminal law and ensuring the institutional 
       preparedness to conduct complementarity-based prosecution 
       of international crimes. Furthermore, it assists the ICC 
       in ensuring consistency in its interpretation of
