Capitol Hill panel addresses the question of the ICC

The Washington Working Group on the ICC (WICC) and AMICC participated in a recent panel entitled "A Seven Year Assessment of the International Criminal Court: Accomplishments, Next Steps, and U.S. Priorities"

Watch it here.

An expert panel highlighted the Court's accomplishments, its future, efforts to bring the "crime of aggression" under the Court's jurisdiction at its 2010 Review Conference, and how the U.S. can engage the ICC and play a constructive role in bringing war criminals to justice. This briefing was sponsored by Citizens for Global Solutions and Senator Christopher J. Dodd (D-CT). AMICC Convener and Washington Working Group on the ICC (WICC) co-chair John Washburn, an organizer of the event, was in attendance.
