From 5-10 December 2022, States Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court will convene in The Hague for the 21st annual session of the Assembly of States Parties (ASP).

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.
