Abstract:
This thesis examines the situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Kivu provinces and the role of the International Criminal Court in quelling the violence there. The two men under examination, Bosco Ntaganda and Sylvestre Mudacumura, are both leaders of rebel factions that are wanted for war crimes by the ICC. This work details the history that led to the present conflict and presents other examples of ICC activity, such as the warrants issued for members of the Lord’s Resistance Army of Uganda, to examine the proper course of action for those who seek justice in the area. In addition, this thesis covers the role of outside forces, principally the government of Rwanda, in the conflict. Finally, recommendations are presented on how all players should respond to the International Criminal Court’s warrants. Due to the voluntary detainment of Bosco Ntaganda late in the process of creating this work, there is also a final addendum analyzing this event in the overall structure of the argument.
