Throughout the campaign to establish the ICC, African governments, regional bodies and civil society have played key roles for the Court to become a reality and continue to hold an important position in promoting the ICC. Thirty-three African countries have ratified the Rome Statute, making Africa the most represented region in the Assembly of States Parties.

However, much work remains with regards to the implementation of the Rome Statute into national legislations in the continent. Even though several implementation laws have been drafted, only two drafts have been completed and enacted.

In addition, the current seven situations before the ICC concern Africa (Côte d’Ivoire, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan, the Central African Republic, Kenya and Mali).
