Political Science and International Relations Seminar Series Semester 2 2017 : African Resistance to the International Criminal Court: implications for the “anti-impunity” norm Other events...
Abstract: about two-thirds of African states are members of the International Criminal Court (ICC), and before 2008 they generally cooperated with it unproblematically. But in July 2008 the ICC’s Prosecutor issued an arrest warrant for Sudan’s sitting President Omar al-Bashir for war crimes and crimes against humanity. Subsequently, key African actors – both the AU and many ICC African members – have resisted the ICC ever-more stridently. This presentation explores the influence of ‘strategic’ and ‘tactical’ resistance to the ICC. Resistance to the ICC is a major problem as it has neither the authority nor the resources to act on its own and, instead, it is heavily reliant on members cooperating with it. I explain why the level of African resistance has effectively stalled effort to entrench progressive norms in international politics.
