    Hello East African Philosopher,

    I’m a second year law student in Massachusetts and am currently working on a thesis about selective prosecution in the ICC. I came across your blog. I found it interesting. I’m wondering if you might be able to share some insight or give some hints about where to research.

    As of now the title and roadmap of my thesis are as follows:

    Selective Prosecution in the International Criminal Court: Weak States, Easy Targets.

    To date the only prosecutions instituted by the ICC have been against citizens of states that are weak actors in the international arena or states that fail to enjoy the support of powerful nations (Uganda, DRC, CAR, Sudan). This paper will explore the similarities of the current cases chosen for prosecution by the ICC and also the economic, political and cultural similarities of states and individual actors alleged to have committed atrocities but who remain un-prosecuted. Contrasting these findings the paper will also examine the arguments that, on the one hand, the ICC’s investigative decisions erode the structure of international law enforcement and yet, on the other, how the selective prosecution of weak states, while inherently unfair, may be, in the initial years, a necessary step in establishing the validity of the court.

    I hope to hear from you. If not, I’ll say goodbye and let you know that I respect your passion.
