The International Criminal Court Controversy

An analysis of the United States' major objections against the Rome Statute

Reihe: Forschungsberichte internationale Politik, Band 33, 2005, broschiert, 136 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-8258-8371-x

The United States' opposition to the International Criminal Court (ICC) has developed into the epitome of fierce controversy concerning the international legal order in the 21st century. This volume represents an analysis of both the legal objections asserted by the involved U.S. administrations as well as a set of political motives the author considers likely to underlie their opposition. Fostering mutual understanding is the pre-condition for achieving an ease of tension in the future - which is in the very interest not only of the ICC and its States Parties, but also of the United States.

Philipp Meißner, M.A. Political Science, Freie Universität Berlin. Clerkship at the Office of the Prosecutor of the ICC, followed by a fellowship on hybrid tribunals within the Postgraduate Program in International Affairs, jointly run by the Robert Bosch Foundation and the German National Academic Foundation.
