The International Criminal Court (ICC) has launched a website (www.10a.icc-cpi.info) to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the entry into force of the Rome Statute.

After 60 States had ratified the Rome Statute, on 1 July 2002, the ICC started its activities marking a historic milestone towards ending impunity. Governed by the Rome Statute, the ICC is the first permanent, treaty-based, international criminal court established to help end impunity for the perpetrators of the most serious crimes of concern to the international community. The Court is a fully functional institution supported by 121 States Parties. It has undertaken seven investigations, 15 cases and issued 20 arrest warrants.

The ICC supports initiatives of stakeholders to celebrate the tenth anniversary. The website provides free tools, including publications and audio-visual materials, for those hosting events. Additionally, it aims at serving as a platform for States and non-States Parties, intergovernmental and regional organizations, academia and civil society to share information on specific activities throughout the year. The website, which is available in English and French, features a calendar of events, a photo gallery, press releases, and further background information about the Court.

Stakeholders can submit their activities and events to the website via the following email: [email protected].


Follow the Court’s activities on YouTube and Twitter.
