Comment on the Peace Lecture Question: “To what extent can the ICC advance peace around the world?”
I believe that the ICC can affect peace around the world. The ICC serves as a symbol to us of how we can affect peace by cooperating with other governments. We have seen achievements in global health measures, and I believe we can have achievements in other areas as well, as long as we have the funding needed. I was shocked by the numbers that were presented to us on the amount of spending that goes into global governance verse other projects (even Stanford-specific projects). A crucial issue seems to be in allocation of funds--to advance peace around the world, we will need to invest further into global governance.
