2020 ICC Prosecutor Election – Crucial Opportunity to Continue Strengthening Gender Justice

The international community is gearing up for one of the most important elections in the international criminal justice field. In December 2020, the 122 States Parties to the Rome Statute will elect the next International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor, following a nearly 18-month identification and selection process which has recently begun.

Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice (WIGJ) calls on all stakeholders in the global fight against impunity to ensure a thorough, independent, transparent and merit-based selection and nomination process.
