Chapter Summary

The 2006 Strategic Plan of the International Criminal Court purports to light the way for the next ten years of the Courts operation in realizing the aims of the Rome Statute. In the Strategic Plan, the Courts mission establishes three overarching goals, the second of which is to act transparently and efficiently&t;. The Courts status as a conventional creation of multi-state consent makes it unique in the field, and necessitates its operation in spheres beyond the remit of any of its predecessors. The unwieldy nature of the Courts procedural framework is exacerbated by the diverse mechanisms for amending the texts. Each of them is subject to a different process by which amendments are proposed, considered and adopted. Few quibble with the proposition that the judges are well placed to assess the effectiveness of procedural provisions, both in expediting the process and protecting the fundamental rights of accused and victim alike.
