States elect five women and one man to serve nine year terms as ICC judges.

As five of the six outgoing ICC judges are women, the Coalition campaigned to ensure that female candidates were nominated by states to ensure fair gender representation on the ICC bench.

We urged states to seek out the very best and most qualified female candidates to uphold this fundamental standard.

Read all about the new judges and their visions for international justice.

ICC JUDICIAL ELECTIONS 2017

 

2017: Elections for six new ICC judges

6 judicial vacancies |  9-year terms  |  16th ASP session  |  New York, December 2017  

ICC member states nominated 12 candidates for election to six  vacant judicial positions at The Hague-based Court. 

The election followed the Court’s regular judicial elections process, which replaces a third of the 18 judges’ bench every three years. The new judges will serve a nine-year term from March 2018.

To ensure that the ICC bench is representative of gender, geographical representation and legal expertise, each judicial election has minimum voting requirements (MVRs).

The following MVRs were in place in 2017: five female candidates; one from Asia-Pacific; one from Africa; one from Latin America and the Caribbean; one with specific expertise in criminal law and procedure (“List A”); and one with specific expertise in international law (“List B”).
