Chatham House paper - Africa and the ICC, by Max du Plessis and others.

More than two-thirds of the members of the African Union (AU) are parties to the treaty establishing the International Criminal Court (ICC Rome Statute). Nevertheless over the years the Assembly of the AU has adopted various resolutions critical of the ICC and its practice. This paper, co-authored by Doughty Street Associate Tenant Dr Max du Plessis, discusses some of the reasons for the apparent antagonism of the AU towards the ICC. The paper flows from a seminar hosted at Chatham House and chaired by Elizabeth Wilmshurst, another associate tenant at Doughty Street.
