What does the high road cost?; or, Thanks, ICC: Bashir orders a dozen+ aid agencies out of Darfur

March 17, 2009

There has been lots of speculation, hand-wringing and other expressions of sincere concern since the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for the president of Sudan (see especially well-wrung hands here and here).

Turns out they were on to something. The LA Times has a wonderful–and, blessedly and unusually, lengthy–piece today exposing the costs to civilians in Darfur of the political game that’s being played over the ICC warrant.

International justice/jurisprudence seems to me like a great tool. But how are we supposed to use it? Thoughts. Please.
