The Role of Kenya’s Diplomatic Efforts in the Dropping of ICC Cases in Kenya (2013-2016) And Their Impact on the ICC Itself: Strategy, Tactics and Challenges

Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to investigate the formulation of the diplomatic strategy used by the Kenyan government in combating the ICC cases against its leaders, the tactics and forums used in executing it and to gauge Kenya’s level of success. Second, on a broader level, this study aimed to establish the effect of Kenya’s diplomatic strategy on the ICC. The success of this onslaught has raised questions about the future of the ICC and, worryingly, provided a blue print for other nations that may face Kenya’s situation. To answer the research questions and achieve its objectives, this study adopted a state or governmental studies research design, a qualitative research method. For the purpose of this study, the target population was Kenya’s diplomats, members of civil society organizations (CSOs) involved in the diplomacy surrounding the ICC cases, as well as any other Kenyan nationals who participated in or observed the diplomatic efforts by Kenya. This study adopted Snowball Sampling, where the researcher depended on referral from interviewees to identify potential respondents. The study gathered its data by use of in-depth interviews and by reliance on secondary sources such as news reports, UN documents, Conference reports, African Union documents, Government documents, Civil Society reports, fieldwork, and various other academic sources. In analyzing the data, the researcher used thematic analysis. The data was categorized and sorted into patterns or themes as the primary basis for organizing and reporting the study findings. The results showed that Kenya’s diplomatic strategy was planned and coordinated. The strategy was executed using clearly set-out tactics at various forums in a coordinated manner. The Government’s main challenge came from the robust opposition provided by both local and international CSOs. This study recommends further research to explore how the ICC can navigate political influence on its operations and how Africa’s grievances can be addressed to the satisfaction of African states.
