MUST SEE: The Bush Administration’s Response to the International Criminal Court

Very little scholarship has looked systematically at the Bush administration’s behavior with relation to the ICC. 1 This Article attempts to fill that gap. I first examine relevant events prior to President Bush’s inauguration, then present a chronology of events during the first two years of his administration.
Following this factual discussion, I analyze U.S. objectives related to the ICC and argue that the Bush administration has pursued these objectives with aggressive unilateralism.

I rest my case.
