The Prosecutor, Palestine and Dominic Ongwen: A Reflection on the Most Recent Developments at the International Criminal Court (ICC)

February 12, 2021 12:15 PM - 1:15 PM


Join us Friday, February 12 at 12:15 PM PST to hear Richard Dicker share his remarkable ICC behind-the-scenes insights with us, fortuitously at a remarkable time in the Court's history.

  • Next ICC Prosecutor: Hugely consequential choice will be made (contrary to prior practice and all expectations) by secret ballot from the 123 ICC member States
  • Israel & Palestine: The judges of Pre-Trial Chamber I approved the Prosecutor's request to open an investigation into alleged war crimes committed by both sides
  • Dominic Ongwen: Trial Chamber IX handed down a guilty verdict for Ongwen, formerly a commander of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). Ongwen surrendered himself in the Central African Republic to armed forces searching for the LRA leader and ICC suspect, Joseph Kony
  • What does this all portend for the Court?
