The Admissibility Analysis of the "Situation" in the Republic of Kenya before the International Criminal Court

Hector Olasolo Alonso, Enrique Carnero-Rojo

Research output: Chapter in Book/ReportChapter


The law and practice of the ICC endorses a clear distinction between ‘situations’ and ‘cases’. ‘Situations’ are generally defined in terms of temporal, territorial and in some cases personal parameters, whereas ‘cases’ entail specific incidents during which one or more crimes within the jurisdiction of the Court seem to have been committed by one or more identified suspects. As practical examples of this distinction, the ICC refers to ‘victims of the situation’ and to ‘victims of the case’ and keeps separate records of the proceedings within each ‘situation’ and each ‘case’.
