  2. 2. Methodology and Technical Details This poll comprises findings from an Ipsos online poll:  Fieldwork period: December 4-8, 2014  The first wave was conducted February 21-24, 2014  The survey interviewed a national sample of 1,004 adults  The first wave included 1,005 adults  These slides also contain some data filtered on just those respondents reporting that they know ‘A great deal’, ‘A fair amount’, or ‘ A little bit’ about the ICC at Q1 (cutting out those who say they know ‘Nothing at all’). This reduced the filtered base size to 338, and is referred to in the data as ‘Aware of ICC’ audience. ─ The first wave included 379 of these respondents  Weighting then employed to balance demographics and ensure that the sample's composition reflects that of the U.S. adult population according to Census data and to provide results intended to approximate the sample universe.  Statistical margins of error are not applicable to online polls because they are based on samples drawn from opt-in online panels, not on random samples that mirror the population within a statistical probability ratio.  All sample surveys and polls may be subject to other sources of error, including, but not limited to coverage error, and measurement error. 2

  7. 7. Joining the International Criminal Court 7 3. The International Criminal Court (ICC)is the world’s only permanent international tribunal created by a treaty for the purpose of investigating and prosecuting war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity (mass atrocities). Currently, 122 countries are members of the International Criminal Court. The United States formally announced in 2002 that it would not become a member of the International Criminal Court for a multitude of reasons, including questions about the court’s jurisdiction and structure. Some people believe that the US should become more involved in or fully join the ICC so that we can use our considerable power, influence, and resources to support the important efforts of the Court to pursue individuals who have committed mass atrocities (when the perpetrator’s own country’s courts have failed to do so) Some people believe that the US should not join the ICC because it compromises our sovereignty as a nation, and because our standing in the world means our military personnel and civilian officials might be prosecuted via the ICC for political reasons 37% 25% 38% 59% 24% 17% The US should become more involved in or fully join the ICC The US should not join the ICC Don't know All Aware of ICC Which of these statements comes closer to your personal opinion?

  11. 11. ISIS in the Courts: United States Involvement 11 5A. The International Criminal Court (ICC) is investigating whether charges could be brought against individual citizens or nationals of ICC member countries, such as the United Kingdom, France, Jordan, and Tunisia, who may have committed international atrocity crimes in support of ISIS/The Islamic State. The US is not an ICC member country, which means it is not obligated to cooperate and assist the ICC on these potential cases against Islamic State, although it may volunteer to help. US law, however, currently forbids the United States from allocating money to assist the ICC, voluntarily or otherwise. 42% 20% 39% 55% 28% Which of the following comes closer to your personal opinion? 17% All Aware of ICC The US should amend US laws to allow funding to assist the ICC in prosecuting individuals who have committed atrocity crimes as part of ISIS/The Islamic State The US should not get involved in prosecuting individuals who have committed atrocity crimes as part of ISIS/The Islamic State Don't know Base: All Respondents (n=1005); All at least aware of ICC (338)
  12. 12. ISIS in the Courts: United States Involvement 12 5B. Some people oppose US cooperation and assistance with the International Criminal Court and its cases out of concern that the International Criminal Court may one day also target American citizens or citizens of our allies (such as Israel). However, the ICC is now considering charges against individuals who have committed international atrocity crimes as part of ISIS/The Islamic State and who are citizens of ICC member countries (such as France or Jordan), yet US law makes it hard to support these cases with financial assistance. 39% 22% 39% 55% 27% 18% All Aware of ICC With this in mind, which of the following comes closer to your personal opinion? The US should amend US laws to allow funding to assist the ICC in prosecuting individuals who have committed atrocity crimes as part of ISIS/The Islamic State The US should not get involved in prosecuting individuals who have committed atrocity crimes as part of ISIS/The Islamic State Don't know Base: All Respondents (n=1005); All at least aware of ICC (338)
