David Kaye releases report on UN Security Council and International Criminal Court
Prof. Kaye, director of UCI Law's International Justice Clinic, has announced the release of The Council and the Court, a report that answers critical questions about how the UN Security Council may improve its support of the International Criminal Court. For instance, what steps may be taken to convert the rhetorical and political support of the Council to concrete measures supporting Court activities? And how may supporters build lasting support for the Court on the Council? Dozens of off-the-record interviews conducted in 2012 in New York, Beijing, Moscow, The Hague, and elsewhere underlie this report. Many of its ideas developed during a two-day workshop held in Laguna Beach, Calif., in November 2012, which brought together diplomats, ICC officials, NGO leaders, and scholars to identify the needs of the Court, the opportunities for cooperation, and steps Council members could take in support of it.
