Week 3 Blog Posts

Blog post (Due 7/22):  Visit the International Criminal Court (ICC) website (http://www.icc-cpi.int/en_menus/icc/Pages/default.aspx). Under the “Situations and Cases” tab, select one of the situations brought before the ICC. Provide a brief narrative of the conflict and discuss whether an international court should have jurisdiction in this conflict.

Blog post comments (Due 7/24): Do you agree with the blog post that the ICC should or should not have jurisdiction in this armed conflict? Why or why not? Can you foresee any problems in employing an international court rather than a local court in this case?
