(p.1) 1 Introduction
Negotiating Sovereignty and Human Rights

Sibylle Scheipers

Manchester University Press

This book aims to understand the US failure to impose its political preferences on the institutional design of the ICC and the subsequent transatlantic debate over the Court by exploring the discursive dynamic of this conflict. From this perspective, the official statements and explanations of diplomats and negotiators concerning the ICC become the main focus of research, since they are the main site of political power struggles. This chapter introduces the main themes of the book and explains why the book focuses on the transatlantic debate over the ICC.

Keywords:   ICC, political power struggle, US, transatlantic debate
