On April 11, ...

...2002, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cambodia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ireland, Jordan, Mongolia, Niger, Romania, and Slovakia deposited instruments of ratification of the Statute of the International Criminal Court. Sixty-six states thus having ratified, the ICC treaty entered into force on July 1, 2002, fewer than 4 years after its adoption at a diplomatic conference in Rome. Today the court has 104 states parties. Japan and Yemen recently have made significant steps toward, ratification; however, the parliament of Yemen recanted its initial "aye" vote just 2 days ago.
... 1919, the International Labour Organization was established, within the framework of the post-World War I Treaty of Versailles, "as an autonomous organization associated with the League of Nations." Though the League collapsed with the advent of World War II, the ILO remains active to this day.
