International Criminal Court: Recommendations to the 15th session of the Assembly of States Parties (16 to 24 November 2016)
The 15th session of the Assembly of States Parties of the International Criminal Court will take place at a time when the Court’s activities are increasing. However, three states parties have deposited instruments to withdraw from the Rome Statute. This paper sets out Amnesty International’s seven priority recommendations for the session which include urging states parties to: affirm their support for the Court; calling on states parties that are withdrawing from the Statute to reconsider their decisions; supporting additional resources for the Court to expand its work in 2017; ensuring that Rule amendments ensure the rights of the accused and the effectiveness of the Court; and strengthening measures to ensure state cooperation with the Court.
