Amnesty International’s key recommendations for ASP17

Amnesty International recommendations to ICC Assembly of States Parties (ASP)
Netsanet Belay, Amnesty International’s Africa Director for Research and Advocacy, addressing the Assembly of State Parties.

 

Amnesty International released its key recommendations for the seventeenth session of the Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute (‘ASP’) which we urge all states parties to consider and the Assembly to address. The recommendations focus on the plenary debates on the Assembly’s agenda, and we urge states to reflect the following points in their interventions and participation at the Assembly.

We also provide recommendations on draft provisions to be adopted in the ‘omnibus resolution’ in relation to:

i. An updated victims’ strategy and;
ii. The election of the next Prosecutor at the Assembly of States Parties’ nineteenth session.

The Assembly of States Parties of the International Criminal Court will take place in The Hague from 5 to 12 December 2018.

Throughout the Assembly session we will also be tweeting from our @AmnestyCIJ account and will publishing opinion pieces on this platform, so stay tuned!
