In light of the twentieth anniversary of the entry into force of the Rome Statute in 2022, it is timely and topical to critically examine the achievements, challenges and critiques of the ICC. The discussion will focus on select topical issues, including the Court’s effectiveness, international cooperation, completion strategies and impact of the Court, as well as the centrality of the ICC in the fight against impunity alongside other accountability mechanisms and national prosecutions.
