The International Criminal Court represents a major development in International Criminal Law. On July 17, 1998, 120 states adopted the Rome Statute as the legal basis for the court. The Rome Statute entered into force on July 1, 2002, after ratification by 60 countries. Currently, the statute has received 117 ratifications. Despite this development, three administrations have kept the United States outside the court. This program will debate the future of U.S. policy regarding the International Criminal Court and whether a policy change is necessary.
