Established by the Rome Statute in 2002, the International Criminal Court is the only permanent international judicial body to try individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.  The Biden Administration recently rescinded sanctions levied against ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, who will be ending her nine-year term shortly.  The new Prosecutor, British barrister Karim Khan, will take office in June after prevailing in a highly criticized election process.  Multiple challenges are in store for Khan, including criticism of the organization for its lack of prosecutions, geo-centric investigations and inefficiency.

Please join our discussion with international experts and practitioners in their view of the historical challenges of the ICC, the recent election of the new prosecutor and hopes for the future of the organization.
