This year marks the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Rome Statute, which established the International Criminal Court (ICC). Located in The Hague, The Netherlands, it is an independent judicial body with jurisdiction over persons charged with genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes.

For much of this time, Christine Van den Wyngaert served as a judge for the ICC, as well as the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, and the International Court of Justice. To honor her distinguished service, she will receive the World Peace Through Law Award in a ceremony that will include her lecture on the need for international instruments for justice.
