Assembly of States Parties 2019

From 2-6 December 2019, International Criminal Court (ICC) States Parties convened in The Hague for the 18th annual session of the Assembly of States Parties (ASP) 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.
