This chapter discusses the work of the ICC for the year 2012 on a case by case basis, as well as several important developments since its inception in 2002. An important achievement in 2012 was the first final judgment reached by the ICC in the case of Lubanga. The ICC’s relation with African states is illuminated, since all situations under investigation by the ICC concern African states. Consequently, the prosecutorial policy of the ICC was subjected to criticism, which also featured in the case of Laurent Gbagbo in the Ivory Coast situation, the case of Saif al Islam in the Libya situation and the case against the four accused in the Kenyan situation.

Keywords:   African Union, prosecutorial policy, Lubanga, cooperation ICC, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Libya
