Abstract:

The International Criminal Court became active on July 1, 2002. The United States has not become a state-party to the Court. One of the major concerns that the United States has with the International Criminal Court is the Court’s trigger mechanisms by the independent prosecutor or a referral by a state-party. The United States fears that the trigger mechanisms may be politically influenced. This paper analyzes how the fear of prosecution is unfounded; however, evidence is provided supporting the fear of an indictment if the United States becomes a state-party to the Rome Statute is well-founded. Positive and negative implications of an indictment by the International Criminal Court against an American political or military official are also considered.
