20 years of the International Criminal Court: accomplishments and future challenges

12 September 2022



The adoption of the Rome Statute in 1998 represented a ground-breaking benchmark in international criminal law setting a new standard to end impunity for the most serious crimes. The International Criminal Court was established upon the entry into force of the Rome Statute on 1 July 2002, establishing then a permanent system to end impunity for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

The speakers, all former or current judges of the International Criminal Court will share their experiences and insights on the advances accomplished and will reflect on the challenges ahead.
