This course will examine the history, structure, legal foundations, and politics surrounding the International Criminal Court. Created in 1998, the ICC is potentially one of the most important international institutions. This course will examine in detail the diplomacy and advocacy that led to the court's creation. It will examine the structure of the Rome Statute and its contributions to international criminal law. The course will cover the campaign to achieve broad ratification of the Rome Statute before moving on to examine the court's early record. Key questions will be how the court selects and investigates cases and how it encourages states to enforce court decisions.
