War Crimes Committee Conference - Session 2: Workplace culture at the International Criminal Court (ICC)

In recent years the issue of workplace culture has become a critical focus of legal practitioners working in international criminal justice institutions such as the International Criminal Court (ICC). A 2019 IBA global survey of almost 7,000 lawyers uncovered widespread bullying and harassment in the legal profession, and a 2021 IBA global survey of almost 3,500 legal professionals confirmed that there is a mental wellbeing crisis in the legal profession, one which has a disproportionate impact on women, young people, those who identify as an ethnic minority and those with disabilities. Lawyers working in the international criminal law field are speaking up about their experiences and frustrations with the ‘old boys’ club’ mentality that persists in many offices. Whether it’s bullying and harassment – including predatory behaviour – toxic environments or work-related secondary trauma, lawyers are advocating for a shift towards creating safe, healthy and inclusive working conditions. This panel will explore the effectiveness of efforts underway at the ICC to confront the systemic causes of misconduct, such as new vetting processes for the election of officials, the development of effective reporting mechanisms and new forms of mandatory training.
