During the 14th session of the Assembly of States Parties (ASP), the Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice issued a statement on the 2016 budget and the restructuring process of the ICC Registry, known as the ReVision project.
The Women’s Initiatives has monitored and analysed the institutional development of the ICC for the past 11 years. Every year for more than a decade, we have documented and published our analysis of the Court – with respect to its substantive work and institutional developments – in our annual Gender Report Card on the ICC.
We have always invested in monitoring the Court as a global public institution based on the premise that without a sound and stable structure, the ICC will not be able to deliver on its substantive mandate with respect to the prosecution of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. Drawing on our longitudinal data, the Women’s Initiatives statement reflects some of our concerns regarding the implementation of the ReVision project. The Women’s Initiatives welcomes the decision of States Parties at the ASP to conduct an external audit of the ReVision project including its cost, process, implementation and impact.
