From 18 to 26 November 2009, the eighth session of the Assembly of States Parties (ASP) to the Rome Statute of the ICC was held in The Hague, Netherlands. States parties adopted the Court’s budget for 2010 and discussed a number of matters, including cooperation, victims and defence issues, and communications as well as preparations for the 2010 Review Conference, to name but a few. The Assembly of States Parties also elected Kuniko Ozaki (Japan) and Silvia Fernández de Gurmendi (Argentina) to serve as ICC judges for nine years. More than 200 NGOs attended as observers and contributed to the debate through advocacy meetings, regional lunches, two press conferences, statements in the plenary, and the submission of position papers from the Coalition's issue-based teams.

This page features the various statements, papers and reports issues by NGOs around the eighth ASP session as well as daily summaries of the event.

For more information about the ASP, including ASP reports, decisions and States parties declarations, please visit the ICC website.
