Chapter Summary

Business trends are developing an arguably greater voluntary acceptance of human rights that may eventually lead by way of "soft law" and ever increasing oversight to eventual acquiescence to the ICC - philosophically and pragmatically. Some argue that there can be &t;no peace without justice;&t; others argue that the hemorrhaging of human life must stop at any cost. This section provides authority for substantive offenses as a flagrant violation of international criminal law genocide, and humanitarian law, and human casualties with systematic and widespread human casualties. While some Democratic public office holders such as Governor Richardson and Senator Dodd, who have gone on record favoring U.S. ratification of the Rome Statute, have access to the President, their role in advising the administration focuses on domestic issues rather than foreign policy.

Keywords: human rights; ICC; Rome Statute; U.S.
