This chapter comments on Article 38 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 38 deals with the Presidency, one of the four ‘organs of the Court’ listed in article 34. The Presidency is made up of three judges, elected by their peers. It is responsible for the proper administration of the Court, through management oversight, coordination, and cooperation. It oversees the judicial functions, and has specific responsibilities in this respect assigned by the Statute. The Presidency also assumes a role representing the Court at the international level, broadening its support and promoting its values and ideals. This includes meeting with government officials, representatives of States, parliamentarians, and representatives of international and regional organizations.
