The IBA’s monitoring work includes thematic legal analysis of the ICC’s pre-trial and trial proceedings, and ad hoc evaluations of legal, administrative and institutional issues which could potentially affect the rights of defendants, the impartiality of proceedings and the development of international justice.
The Programme also acts as the interface between the Court and the global legal community. As such, special focus is placed on monitoring emerging issues at the Court of particular relevance to lawyers and collaborating with key partners on specific activities, such as the IBA/ICC List Counsel Campaign, to increase engagement of the legal community on ICC issues.
The IBA Programme on the International Criminal Court (ICC) monitors fair trial issues at the ICC and encourages the legal community to engage with the work of the Court. Programme information is disseminated through regular reports, expert discussions, workshops and other events and expert legal analysis on issues relevant to our mandate.
Based at the Peace Palace in The Hague the IBA’s ICC Programme consults and interacts with Court officials, civil society organisations, academics and international lawyers.
The work of the programme is supported by the IBAHRI Trust .
