ASP22 Report launch: “Judicial Approaches to SGBC at the ICC”

In Statements, Uncategorized by Admin

To bolster the full potential of the Court in enhancing accountability for sexual and gender-based violence (SGBC), Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice undertook a comprehensive analysis of ICC’s jurisprudential developments on SGBC to date.

We are delighted to share our findings and recommendations with our latest report: Judicial Approaches to Sexual and Gender-Based Crimes at the International Criminal Court

The report reveals structural shortcomings, critical improvements, and future opportunities of intersectional justice. It features analysis per specific crime, but also some thematic considerations, including on charging matters, modes of liability, and reparations. Key recommendations to the ICC Judiciary are offered.

The report was launched on 8 December 2023 in the margins of the 22nd annual session of the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute. The event was co-hosted by the Permanent Missions to the UN of Canada and Chile, and the International Gender Champions.

The discussion can be rewatched on UN Web TV at this link:
