25th Anniversary of the Rome Statute Interview with President Silvia Fernandez de Gurmendi

The article discusses the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Rome Statute, which established the International Criminal Court (ICC). The article highlights the hopes and expectations that were present during the creation of the Court, including the belief that prosecuting those responsible for atrocities would bring justice and contribute to international peace and security. The Court has made significant achievements in investigating and prosecuting crimes in various regions, involving victims and survivors, and providing reparations through the Trust Fund for Victims. However, the Court's reach is limited to situations where the concerned states are parties to the Rome Statute, making universality a crucial goal. The main challenges for the Court include achieving universal participation, securing political support and resources, and ensuring cooperation for investigations and prosecutions. The article also emphasizes the importance of delivering justice and contributing to justice efforts at both the international and national levels. The lack of universal participation and hostility towards the Court from some major powers is a concern, but efforts are being made to counter these challenges and protect the Court's independence and integrity. The President of the Assembly of States Parties encourages readers to visit the ICC in The Hague and learn more about its goals and achievements, as well as to join efforts to preserve the bonds that united the international community during the Court's creation.
