The ability of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to function effectively is heavily dependent on cooperation because it does not possess its own enforcement mechanism. In Cooperation and the International Criminal Court: Perspectives from Theory and Practice, edited by Olympia Bekou and Daley J. Birkett, scholars and practitioners in international criminal law provide a detailed analysis of the ICC cooperation regime. Chapters focus on the law and practice of State cooperation, the role of civil society and regional organisations, asset recovery for the purpose of reparations, policy issues and how technology-driven tools can strengthen the ICC cooperation regime in practice. This collection provides a unique insight into the current status of cooperation as well as future challenges for the ICC.
