In recent years, the International Criminal Court (ICC), which holds accountable those responsible for the most serious crimes, has faced many challenges. The Court is criticized for the low number of successful prosecutions and for its decisions to investigate some situations but not others. And in this backdrop, the ICC’s Assembly of States Parties will choose the next chief prosecutor and a new slate of judges while deciding what reforms will help the ICC increase its effectiveness in delivering justice.
Reinhold Gallmetzer, an Appeals Counsel for the Office of the Prosecutor of the ICC, will give an overview of the ICC, describe some recent controversies and issues, and discuss the outlook and role of the world’s only permanent criminal tribunal.
