Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses some basic aspects of the relationship of the International Criminal Court (ICC) with domestic jurisdictions. Five years after the establishment of the ICC there may still be a quite limited understanding of the relationship of the Court with domestic jurisdictions. Five years after the establishment of the ICC one may discover quite often a continuing lack of understanding of the jurisdiction and admissibility regime and of the cooperation regime of the Court. Related to this there may also be continuing fears, critical arguments or mistrust that the ICC will present a threat to the sovereignty of States or to the independence of national courts. The chapter addresses the questions: what needs to be done in such a situation; and how can we secure more knowledge about the ICC system and a better understanding of the ICC in countries which might join the Court as States parties.

Keywords: admissibility regime; cooperation regime; domestic jurisdictions; International Criminal Court (ICC)
