The IBA considers the creation and recognition of an Association of Counsel at the ICC to be a key step in promoting equality of arms and improving the efficient operation of the Court. After 13 years of operation, it is certainly not premature that ICC counsel, the Court and the ASP play their respective parts to ensure that an effective, democratic, influential and well-funded body –long-envisaged by the legal framework of the Court – finally comes into being.
The IBA hopes that this paper will stimulate dialogue by presenting some ideas and identifying some key issues of principle drawn from IBA experience and observations of international criminal courts.
