Next week the resumed 8th session of the ICC's Assembly of States Parties (ASP) meeting will begin. Each State Party has one representative in the ASP, the ICC's governing body. So far 110 States have ratified the Rome Statute. Out of them, 30 are African States, 14 are Asian States, 17 are from Eastern Europe, 24 are from Latin American and Caribbean States, and 25 are from Western European and other States. The U.S. has not ratified the Rome Statute but, due to the US signature on the Final Act of the Rome Conference, US representatives may attend ASP meetings as observers.
CGS will have an observer at the meetings who will keep us updated throughout the week. Check back for "Courtside" CGS's International Criminal Court blog that will be up and running soon!
