The International Criminal Court (ICC) is the first ever permanent, treaty based, criminal tribunal. It was established to promote the rule of law worldwide and to ensure that the gravest crimes of concern to the international community: genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity, do not go unpunished. The Court is an international organization based in The Hague, The Netherlands, with a multicultural staff spanning the entire globe.
The Registry organ within the Court, headed by the Registrar, is responsible for the non-judicial aspects of the administration and servicing of the Court. Accordingly, the Registry is composed of three Divisions: 1) Division of Management Services 2) Division of Judicial Services and 3) Division of External Operations. Each Division is headed by a Director, and the three Directors support the Registrar through the Registry Management Team (RMT) in ensuring that the Registry fulfils its tasks effectively and efficiently.
During 2015-2016, the Registry underwent a significant reorganisation to rationalize its organization, limit the number of reporting lines to the Registrar, strengthen field offices and their coordination, etc.
