As the head of the Court and face of the institution, the Presidency plays a major role in all aspects of the Court, both internal and external. In particular, the Presidency is responsible for:

  • Administration - Provides oversight to ensure that the Court functions properly.
  • Judicial/legal matters - Organises the Chambers’ judicial work and assigns judges to the different Chambers and cases. Also negotiates and concludes agreements, such as cooperation agreements with States who are willing to enforce Court sentences.
  • External relations - Represents the Court, fostering cooperation with countries and promoting public awareness and understanding of the Court.
