Every year, the Canadian Partnership for International Justice (CPIJ) sets up and funds the attendance of a delegation of students, headed by academics and practitioners from academic institutions and NGOs, who attend the Assembly of States Parties (ASP) to the International Criminal Court (ICC). This annuel event takes place in December in The Hague (Netherlands) or in New York (USA).
The ICC ASP is one of the most important events in the field of international justice. Representatives of states that have ratified or acceded to the Rome Statute gather to take crucial decisions on the issues the Court is currently facing. Many ICC senior officials are also attending, and many side-events are organized by civil society organizations to stimulate the discussions and strive to find solutions to outstanding issues that hamper the project envisioned in the Rome Statute.
This symposium gathers the blogposts written by CPIJ delegates in the context of the ASP, which are published on various platforms including IntLawGrrls, Quid Justitiae, Justice in Conflict, Blogue d’Avocats sans frontières Canada and the PKI Global Justice Journal.
