Abstract

The current column covers selected procedural developments at the International Criminal Court (“ICC”) in 2017. During the reporting period, the Court encountered a certain amount of turmoil. Notably, it was highly criticized by certain States. Nevertheless, this has not prevented the ICC from further developing its jurisprudence, and, indeed, as in recent years, the Court delivered numerous decisions. Concerning the proceedings before the Court, some of them confirmed a long-standing body of case law, whilst others provided useful clarifications on specific topics.
