The ICC and the Situation in Kenya is an in-depth analysis of the patterns and predictions revolving around the criminal cases of President Uhuru Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto, and Joshua Arap Sang at the International Criminal Court. Written as a Master's Thesis for the Jackson School of International Studies and the Evans School of Public Affairs, the paper utilizes a combination of policy analysis, program evaluation, and statistical and financial analysis to provide a comprehensive understanding of the Situation. The Kenya Cases represent a critical turning point in the history of international justice. The Situation is a critical turning point because it is the first time that power has been prosecuted by the ICC in which the cases were initiated by the ICC prosecutor, and the first time that such cases have occurred in a country that is considered `stable' and a leader in the region. Two sitting heads of state, whose power has increased instead of waned, are being tried for crimes against humanity in opposition to the wishes of many Security Council members and most in the African Union.
