Commentary on the ICC Draft Guidelines on Intermediaries

Published: 1 Aug 2011

(August 2011) Intermediaries play a critical role in the work of the International Criminal Court (ICC) providing specialist information services and expertise and linking various organs of the ICC with constituencies on the ground. And these roles are likely to only expand as the ourt expands its work. The International Refugee Rights Initiative and the Open Society Justice Initiative therefore welcome the ICC’s effort to regularize its relationship with intermediaries. In order to support this process, IRRI and OSJI have produced a detailed commentary on the International Criminal Court’s “Draft Guidelines Concerning the Relationship between Intermediaries and the International Criminal Court” of October 2010 intended to assist the court in the finalization of the guidelines. The commentary draws on over two years of research and confidential consultations with persons who have worked with the court accross situation countries and a workshop with more than 20 participants in early 2011.
