Abstract

The United States has undermined the effectiveness of the International Criminal Court by refusing to join or support the Court; by withholding support for UN peacekeeping unless US citizens are exempted from international enforcement arising out of such operations; by pressing other countries to sign treaties exempting US citizens from Court proceedings; by cutting US foreign assistance to selected countries unless they sign immunity agreements with Washington; and by holding victims of war crimes and crimes against humanity hostage to obtaining exemptions for US citizens. These US policies make it more difficult to enforce the laws prohibiting genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
