The article examines the legal and non-legal responses to tackling non-cooperation with requests issued by the International Criminal Court. Through an examination of the Rome Statute regime as well as the relevant jurisprudence, the paper argues that a shift in the way non-cooperation is dealt with is needed. The article shows both the strengths and limitations of the cooperation system. It concludes that the legal responses of the Court require consistency in order to send a coherent message to non-cooperating States. Ultimately, the article argues that in order to successfully address non-cooperation, it would be important to focus on possible synergies between the legal framework, political tools, actions that are available to States and judicial findings by the Court.

The ability of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to function effectively is heavily dependent on cooperation because it does not possess its own enforcement mechanism. In Cooperation and the International Criminal Court: Perspectives from Theory and Practice, edited by Olympia Bekou and Daley J. Birkett, scholars and practitioners in international criminal law provide a detailed analysis of the ICC cooperation regime.

Chapters focus on the law and practice of State cooperation, the role of civil society and regional organisations, asset recovery for the purpose of reparations, policy issues and how technology-driven tools can strengthen the ICC cooperation regime in practice. This collection provides a unique insight into the current status of cooperation as well as future challenges for the ICC.

Abstract

The aim of this article is to provide an overview and to evaluate the EU-ICC partnership. The analysis includes the measures the EU has taken to commit to the ICC cause and implement the Rome Statute and their impact on EU policy-making. These include the EU-ICC Cooperation Agreement as well as EU Third Pillar measures affecting Member State cooperation with the ICC and governing the investigation and prosecution of crimes within the jurisdiction of the ICC. The issue of judicial protection and respect of fundamental rights in the EU under the Third Pillar will also be addressed. Finally, the analysis of EU initiatives, primarily in its relations with third countries, to preserve the universality and integrity of the Rome Statute will follow.
