Abstract

The International Criminal Court is considering adding ‘aggression’ to the crimes for which individuals can be prosecuted by the Court. Michael Glennon’s recent article on the subject criticizes this effort from many angles, but a close consideration of his objections shows that each of them misses its target. I use his argument to suggest that there are five important legal and political questions that the ICC must answer to defend its project. Glennon’s article helps raise these questions but does little to answer them.

Keywords: aggression, international law, international criminal court
