First Page



This article addresses four questions. First, is diplomatic immunity a complete shield to criminal trafficking prosecutions and civil suits against diplomats? Second, how have recent civil case precedents limited the impunity typically enjoyed by full diplomats? Third, how can advocates use these new legal precedents to increase deterrence and costs to diplomatic traffickers? Finally, what tools has Congress provided to assist in efforts to hold diplomats stationed in the United States accountable?
