The International Criminal Court’s mandated jurisdiction focuses solely upon genocide and war crimes, not corruption, which costs the world more than $1.6 trillion annually. Impunity for grand corruption thrives in many countries because kleptocrats control the administration of justice, leading to devastating consequences.

This lecture will address the necessity of an International Anti-Corruption Court.
