The International Criminal Court in 2013

This introductory note discusses the developments at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for the year 2013. It focuses on the difficult relation of the ICC with the African continent. The African Union has expressed its concern about the unequal targeting of African states, while atrocities elsewhere are being ignored. The interplay between the ICC and national states is discussed, as an effective relationship between the two is vital for ICC prosecutions. Difficulties in the Kenyan, Libyan and Ivory Coast cases pass in review. The case of Bosco Ntaganda merits special attention, as he voluntarily surrendered to the ICC. This might imply that ICC prosecutions are seen as a more viable alternative as opposed to prosecutions before unstable national judicial institutions.

Keywords:   African Union, complementarity, state cooperation, surrender, unequal targeting, witnesses
