Seminars for Fostering Cooperation with the ICC in Germany
Regional Cooperation Seminar |
Nuremburg | Germany | Western European and other States
11-15 March and 17-21 June 2013
The main goal of these two seminars was to promote mutual understanding and cooperation between the Court and States, as well as international and regional organizations. Approximately 20 senior decision-makers attended each seminar, made possible with thanks to the financial and other support of the Municipality of Nuremberg, European Commission, Germany, Denmark, Hanns Seidel Foundation and the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie.
The ICC’s High-Level Regional Cooperation Seminars aim to enhance cooperation with the Court by increasing understanding about the ICC’s cooperation regime amongst the invitees; promoting dialogue and efforts towards universality of the Rome Statute; and reinforcing high-level and technical-level contacts and partnerships amongst the Court and key interlocutors. Target audiences include Heads of State, Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Justice, and senior officials in charge of operational issues related to the ICC and/or international judicial assistance in criminal matters.
