Rome, Italy | 10-11 December 2012

The Italian Parliament hosted from 10- 11 December 2012 the 7th Consultative Assembly of Parliamentarians for the International Criminal Court and the Rule of Law (CAP ICC), a global gathering of legislators focused solely on the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the fight against impunity for the most serious crimes of international concern.

In a message addressed to the Speaker of the Italian Chamber of Deputies and to the 200 Parliamentarians in attendance from all regions of the world, the President of the Italian Republic, Giorgio Napolitano, recognised “the coherent and meritorious commitment of Parliamentarians for Global Action in support of strengthening the international Rule of Law, in particular via one of its fundamental tools, the ICC”.

The Assembly’s proceedings, which coincided with PGA’s 34th Annual Forum and International Human Rights Day, saw the participation of MPs and State Officials from approximately 70 countries, the highest authorities of the Italian Parliament, prominent Governmental and International personalities, and a high-profile group of representatives from Civil Society, the judiciary, the legal professions and academia.

Among the Assembly’s results, the following deserve specific mention:

The outcomes of all the Panels and the Question-Time with the ICC Prosecutor have been incorporated in the “Rome Action Plan on the Prevention of Atrocities, the Rule of Law and the International Criminal Court”. The document is divided into the following six sections, which reflect the goals of the PGA ICC Campaign:

  1. Achieving the Universal Ratification of the Rome Statute
  2. Ensuring Full Cooperation with the ICC
  3. Promoting Fair and Effective Domestic Prosecutions (complementarity)
  4. Advancing the effective prevention of the most serious crimes on international concern
  5. Promoting respect for international humanitarian law and the prohibition of the unlawful use of force through the 2010 Kampala Amendments to the Rome Statute
  6. Maintaining a political/parliamentary constituency in favour of the Rule of Law and the prevention of the most serious crimes

Parliamentarians for Global Action will work with individual Legislators and other political leaders to make sure that the commitments by, inspiration and empowerment of Lawmakers that emerged in Rome will bear fruit in the national Legislatures of all Participants, by way of further advocacy and analysis efforts, technical assistance, follow-up events and initiatives to be undertaken in conjunction with partners and stakeholders.


 

PGA’s vision is to contribute to the creation of a Rules-Based International Order for a more equitable, safe and democratic world.
