This paper examines the role of major powers within the ICC system, focusing on an assessment of how such powers interact with and respond to ICC activity that clashes with their interests and how the Court has responded thereto, and relates these questions to the theme of this conference, namely whether we should perceive of the ICC as being in crisis. The paper focuses on two case studies: The UK and the US, with respect to ICC activity targeting the conduct of their armed and security forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, respectively.
