The Council for American Students in International Negotiations (CASIN) is seeking American students and/or young professionals to serve as delegates to the 13th Session of the Assembly of States Parties to the International Criminal Court at the United Nations (ASP13). The Assembly of States Parties (ASP) is composed of states that joined the International Criminal Court (ICC) and is a legislative body that manages and oversees the ICC. This year, representatives of states parties will gather for general debate, reports on the activities of the Court, elections, including those of judges, amendments to the Rome Statute, discussions related to cooperation, and other matters.
Following training from CASIN staff and affiliates, delegates to ASP13 will observe proceedings, receive briefings from key stakeholders, including diplomats or NGO experts, and record their observations. In the past, notes taken by CASIN delegations have been used to support official NGO reports, journalistic accounts of the proceedings, and students’ own academic research and coursework.
