High drama in the Gbagbo case at the ICC

Witness protection in the Gbagbo case at the ICC
Monday, February 8, 2016 - 13:07

Observing the proceedings at the International Criminal Court usually means that one looks for a needle in a haystack: the small things that are either extremely interesting or controversial. It’s rare that a single week, let alone one week of a single trial, encapsulates some of the most exciting and interesting aspects of the ICC.

What’s the point of the ICC OTP's Basic Size document?

Wednesday, January 27, 2016 - 08:22

The International Criminal Court faces difficult decisions regarding which cases it takes on. The former prosecutor, Luis Moreno Ocampo, was in favour of multiplying activities in order to increase the impact of the Court. Fatou Bensouda has adopted a different approach, trying to balance the quantity and quality of the work, carefully expanding the number of investigations.. Justice Hub spoke to Michel de Smedt, the ICC's Head of Investigations about these issues.

An inside look into how the ICC works

Wednesday, January 20, 2016 - 14:36

Countless hours have been spent speculating what the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court will do next. Will there be an investigation into crimes allegedly committed by the current Ivorian president, Alassane Ouattara? What will be the next investigation into the Democratic Republic of Congo? Why does it take so long for a case to get to trial?
