The only permanent international criminal court
All our articles on the International Criminal Court (ICC). Based in The Hague in the Netherlands, it was founded by the Rome Statute (international treaty signed by 120 States in 1998). Active since the ratification of the treaty in 2002 (by 60 States), it is responsible for judging those accused of genocide, crimes against humanity, crimes of aggression and war crimes. Sometimes criticized for its lack of results (judgments), its functioning or its budget, its investigations are often considered as means of political or diplomatic pressure.
