Speaking Thursday as part of the Foreign Policy Distinguished Speaker series, Judge Sang-Hyun Song JSD ’70, president of the International Criminal Court, told Cornellians about the ICC’s efforts to prevent atrocities before they occur.

Song, the second president of the court, spoke about the tools the ICC utilizes and the obstacles it faces in trying to stop international criminals before they commit the acts that can bring them before the ICC. These efforts, Song argues, are what differentiate the ICC from other international tribunals.
