From 5-12 December 2018, International Criminal Court member states will convene at the World Forum Convention Center in The Hague for the 17th annual session of the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute.

Serving as the governing body of the Court, the ASP meets in full plenary once a year to discuss and decide upon matters key to the future functioning of the ICC. Civil society is there every step of the way, monitoring sessions and interacting with delegates, in order to advocate for a fair, effective and independent ICC.

Check back for updates as they become available.
