ICC Review Conference, June 2010

From May 31-June 11, members of the JRP team attended the ICC Review Conference in Kampala, Uganda.

The conference provided opportunities for us to share our work with the wider transitional justice (TJ) field and explore possible partnerships with other organizations. This special conference of states parties to the ICC allowed the international community to consider amendments to the Rome Statute and take stock of its implementation and impact. Proposed amendments included: the revision of Article 24 of the Rome Statute, the definition and inclusion of the crime of aggression, and the inclusion of the use of certain weapons as war crimes in the context of an armed conflict not of an international character.
