The Role and Integrity of the First Review Conference on the Statute of the International Criminal Court

Oslo, 23 October 2009

Seminar concept and programme 

The Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) provides that a first Review Conference to consider amendments to it shall be convened seven years after its entry into force on 1 July 2002. Later Review Conferences may be held at the request of a majority of the States Parties. The ICC Assembly of States Parties decided that the first Review Conference would take place in Kampala, Uganda in May and June 2010. These are among the questions discussed at the seminar: What can be discussed at this Conference? What are the likely key issues? Are there any risks to the integrity of the Conference? What regional impact can the Conference have in Africa? What should be the role of civil society at the Conference? Mr. Rolf Einar Fife made a 45-minute presentation on the topic. He was the Focal Point of the ICC Assembly of States Parties on the first Review Conference and the Co-ordinator of the Assembly's Working Group on the Review Conference. He has been one of the leading diplomats behind the creation and early development of the ICC. Mr. Gunnar M. Ekeløve-Slydal, Deputy Secretary-General of the Norwegian Helsinki Committee, commented on Mr. Fife's intervention and presented an NGO perspective on the first Review Conference. He has been an active civil society participant in the establishment of the ICC.
