Abstract

This article examines the progress in establishing an international criminal court (ICC) to try abusers of international humanitarian law and human rights. It argues that the ICC is a much-welcome innovation, and that it represents a virtual consensus within the world community on the need for a permanent body to continue the work of such ad hoc tribunals as those dealing with Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia. The article also takes a very critical look at the failure to date of the United States to take part in the development of the ICC, and it makes an argument for a fundamental change in the stance of the Clinton administration on this matter.
