Thesis Title:

The Obsolescence of State Sovereignty Concept: The Role of the ICC and the African States in Context

This thesis sought to dispel the notions that the ICC is targeting African States and infringing on their state sovereignty. This thesis demonstrated the transition offered by the Rome Statute from the traditional conceptions of state sovereignty to a more contemporary concept of individual sovereignty. The thesis presented a constructive critique of the Afro-centric discourse that the ICC is a Western tool used to target African states. The epistemological premise of his study is that the Rome Statute which is the principal framework of the ICC presents a new approach to the understanding of sovereignty through individual criminal accountability.
