About our International Criminal Court news

Latest news on the International Criminal Court (ICC), providing comprehensive coverage of cases, investigations, verdicts, and the court's role in promoting international justice and accountability for war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity.

The ICC, based in The Hague, Netherlands, is an independent judicial body established by the Rome Statute in 2002. It has jurisdiction over the most serious international crimes committed by individuals, regardless of their official capacity. As of 2024, 123 countries are States Parties to the Rome Statute.

Recent developments at the ICC include ongoing investigations into alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in Afghanistan, Palestine, Ukraine, and Myanmar. The court has also faced challenges, such as the United States' opposition to the ICC's jurisdiction and some African countries' threats to withdraw from the Rome Statute. Despite these obstacles, the ICC continues its work to hold perpetrators accountable and provide justice for victims.

Beyond its legal proceedings, the ICC plays a crucial role in promoting a culture of accountability and deterring future atrocities. It works closely with civil society organisations, victims' groups, and local communities to raise awareness about international justice and support the rehabilitation of those affected by the crimes under its jurisdiction. The court also engages in outreach activities, such as educational programmes and workshops, to foster a better understanding of its mandate and the importance of the rule of law.

The ICC's creation marked a significant milestone in the development of international criminal law. It builds upon the legacy of ad hoc tribunals, such as those for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, and the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials following World War II. The court's existence serves as a powerful reminder that no one is above the law and that the international community is committed to holding those responsible for the most heinous crimes accountable.

As the world continues to grapple with conflicts, human rights abuses, and the effects of globalisation, the ICC's role in upholding international justice remains as vital as ever. Our NewsNow feed on the International Criminal Court keeps you informed about the court's latest activities, landmark cases, and the ongoing struggle to end impunity for the world's most serious crimes.
