(p.125) 7 Conclusion
Negotiating Sovereignty and Human Rights

Sibylle Scheipers

Manchester University Press

The transatlantic debate about the establishment of the ICC involves four discourses, each of which constructs the configuration of sovereignty and human rights in a specific way. This chapter summarises the findings and discusses them with reference to several questions: first, what conclusions can we draw from the US stance on the ICC? And second, how can we explain the fact that the UK and France shifted their positions on the Court in 1997 and 1998, respectively? The conclusion discusses what consequences emerge from the fact that different actors in international relations have different conceptions of international order and the role that sovereignty and human rights are supposed to play within that order. It examines how this affects the concept of international society.

Keywords:   ICC, transatlantic debate, UK, France, international society, human rights, sovereignty
