The International Criminal Court (ICC) investigates and, where warranted, tries individuals charged with the gravest crimes of concern to the international community: genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and the crime of aggression.
The Court is participating in a global fight to end impunity, and through international criminal justice, the Court aims to hold those responsible accountable for their crimes and to help prevent these crimes from happening again.
The Court cannot reach these goals alone. As a court of last resort, it seeks to complement, not replace, national Courts. Governed by an international treaty called the Rome Statute, the ICC is the world’s first permanent international criminal court.
Justice is a key prerequisite for lasting peace. International justice can contribute to long‐term peace, stability and equitable development in post‐conflict societies. These elements are foundational for building a future free of violence.

There are ICC staff from over 100 countries. To ensure continued diversity among staff, the ICC makes it a priority to ensure that all 124 States Parties to the Rome Statute are adequately represented. In an effort to reach out to nationals of our underrepresented States Parties and all those that may have questions about living and working in The Hague, the Court, in cooperation with the city of The Hague, have made these videos.
Glance into the lives of people who have chosen to move to The Hague to pursue their careers. The ICC creates a diverse and balanced environment in terms of both gender and geographic representation, and welcomes applications from female candidates, as well as candidates from the Court’s most underrepresented States Parties, particularly Brazil, the Republic of Korea, Mexico, Germany and Japan.
