Challenges and Opportunities for African State and Civil Society Engagement in the ICC Review Process


The International Criminal Court (ICC) has faced mounting criticism over the past few years as it struggles to fulfill its ambitious mandate in the Rome Statute. Poor quality investigations and prosecutions, controversial judicial decisions, institutional infighting, and a seeming lack of accountability for poor performance appear to have compounded mounting internal and external problems, including low budgets, limited state cooperation and political backlash from powerful States. In response, a formal review of the Court's performance was undertaken by a panel of independent experts. The Independent Experts Review process produced formal recommendations intended to address these issues. The Center for International Law and Policy in Africa (CILPA), with the co-sponsorship of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) and the International Nuremberg Principles Academy (INPA), invites you to a roundtable discussion exploring the International Criminal Court’s ongoing review and reform process.
