The International Criminal Court is the world's first permanent international criminal court, which is established and governed by the Rome Statute, a treaty ratified by 114 countries. It is located in The Hague, the Netherlands.
The adoption of the Rome Statute in 1998 was a historic step, reflecting the determination of the world community to put an end to impunity and to contribute to the prevention of crimes which threaten the peace, security and well-being of the world.
The ICC has jurisdiction over the most serious crimes of concern to the international community: genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes committed after 1 July 2002.
