Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the International Criminal Court (ICC), based in The Hague, the Netherlands. It delves into the legal cooperation regime of this, in many aspects, historic court-which, it must be clarified from the start, does not only cover judicial assistance but also assistance in the field of police work. The chapter limits itself to an examination of the cooperation regime (1) between the ICC and individual European Union (EU) Member States and (2) between the ICC and the EU as such. It aims to provide a general overview of the main characteristics of and some concrete examples related to these two central topics. Before addressing the central subject, the chapter provides the reader with some brief and basic information on the Court. It argues that the interaction between the ICC and the EU is likely to increase in the years to come.
