ICC in difficulty ten years after the Rome Statute
Thursday 17 July marks the tenth anniversary of the Rome Statute, the treaty that led to the establishment of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Set up in 2002, the ICC is mandated to investigate and prosecute crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, when national authorities are unable, or unwilling to do so. Lauded as one of the most ambitious steps by the international community in recent history, the ICC has made significant progress in its investigations.
