Shifting Alliances: Great Powers, Transnational Advocacy Networks, and the International Criminal Court

About the Project

This project identifies the consequences of inter/intra network dynamics for the articulation and institutionalization of the most prominent features of the International Criminal Court.

It is argued that rather than assume that network cohesion exists and that network density is an asset for issue advocacy, it could very well be that such dynamics impede norm emergence or subsequent stages of norm development. From an international law perspective, Medlir's interest lies in the potential long term effect NGO advocacy could have via the creation of the ICC.
