Burundi, South Africa and Gambia have signaled their intent to quit the ICC, shocking the international community, with dramatic implications for the Court, for international criminal law, and for the international community. The issues in play are varied and complex: South Africa has raised conflicts among international legal regimes; Gambia has raised racial politics of international criminal justice. In the meantime, the Court presses forward in its quest to end impunity and restore trust in its mandate and operations, against increasingly potent charges of neo-colonialism. Our roundtable discusses implications of the latest developments.

  • Dr Dov Jacobs, Leiden University
  • Prof. Dr Harmen van der Wilt, University of Amsterdam
