International Criminal Court: How’s It Doing? Should the U.S. Join?

William H. Taft, IV, Professor of International Law and Diplomacy, Stanford Law School

The International Criminal Court is almost 10 years old, but the Obama administration has yet to decide if the U.S. will join. Fear that it would be a politicized institution likely to prosecute American soldiers have not been realized, nor has it been effective in prosecuting persons responsible for war crimes. In recent years the U.S. has moderated its hostility to the court, but where do we go from here?
