Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the relation between existing institutions, laws and (in particular) organizations, in order to show why they are insufficient, and why new institutions are needed to change the present situation. It begins with the first requirement of a possible changed regime: it must not stop with positivist legal systems that work well in combination with neoliberal policies and globalization.This chapter argues that the connection between "aggression" and the human person should characterize activities that can be termed forms of ecoviolence, especially as (1) aggression has not been fully defined at this time in the Rome Statute of the ICC, nor anywhere else; and (2) in the same context at least there is no specific reference to the presence of a conflict situation to define it in the Rome Statute. Cosmopolitanism does not require legitimacy from a world assembly, nor any form of "counting of heads".

Keywords: acts of aggression; cosmopolitanism; ecoviolence; neoliberal democracy; positivist legal systems; Rome Statute of the ICC
