Negotiating sovereignty and human rights

International society and the International Criminal Court

First Edition

Sibylle Scheipers

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Takes the transatlantic conflict over the International Criminal Court as a lens for an enquiry into the normative foundations of international society
  • Shows how the way in which actors refer to core norms of the international society such as sovereignty and human rights affect the process and outcome of international negotiations
  • Offers an innovative take on the long-standing debate over sovereignty and human rights in international relations.
  • Shows how competing interpretations of sovereignty and human rights and the different visions of world order that they imply fed into the transatlantic debate over the ICC and transformed this debate into a conflict over the normative foundations of international society
