The International Criminal Court (‘icc’), just as any other court of law, has several audiences, which include the parties and participants to the proceedings, the legal community and the general public. Based on typologies developed for other courts, this paper seeks to identify categories of audiences of the icc. The identification of such categories may be helpful in understanding reactions to the Court’s work. It may also be a tool in identifying priority audiences for the Court and in managing expectations. Furthermore, identifying audiences potentially may help to explain why certain decisions are taken.
