A Matter of Trust - The ICC and the United States

Skygge, Ebba (2003)
Department of Law
Abstract
Impunity from grave crimes such as genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity are one of our society's greatest problems. One step in the right direction towards holding people accountable for their gross criminal acts, and serving justice to victims, has been the establishment of the International Criminal Court, a treaty-based Court with jurisdiction to try perpetrators of these crimes. Why, then, is the United States doing all it can to thwart these international efforts? This thesis looks at the arguments brought forward by the US in order to find the underlying reason for this opposition.
