Abstract:

"The International Criminal Court (ICC) is a court of last resort, stepping in only where national authorities do not prosecute serious international crimes. Governments seeking to avoid ICC intervention can do so by showing the ICC prosecutor that they are conducting genuine investigations. This can give the ICC prosecutor significant leverage with these authorities, serving as a pressure point for justice. Making the most of this influence to bring about genuine national proceedings is crucial for expanding the fight against impunity for these crimes and increasing the ICC's impact. Effective domestic prosecutions are all the more important given the alarming number of international crimes and the ICC's limited resources. The ICC Office of the Prosecutor has recognized this opportunity in certain cases in which it is considering whether to open a full investigation, a process known as a "preliminary examination." ... The report finds that the ICC's impact is higly dependent on context and that steep challenges, such as a lack of political will at the national level to support domestic prosecutions, may be real constraints. ... The ICC prosecutor's strong engagement with national authorities and civil society, faster timelines, and more transparency, along with greater support from other interntional actors may improve the odds for success."--Back cover.
