The International Criminal Court (ICC) is discussed, directly and indirectly, at every session of the General Assembly of the United Nations.

The General Assembly debates and adopts every year a resolution on the ICC. In November 2005, the President of the ICC, Judge Philippe Kirsch, presented the first-ever report of the ICC to the 60th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

In addition, the General Assembly considers and adopts several resolutions on a range of issues relevant to the ICC, such as the rights of the child; extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions; safety and security of humanitarian personnel and protection of UN personnel, and other thematic and country specific resolutions.

In this section, you will find information, organized by yearly sessions, about General Assembly debates and resolutions of relevance to the ICC.
