The Jurisdiction, Complementarity and Cooperation Division (JCCD), is the lead division for facilitating the Office’s investigations by ensuring cooperation and judicial assistance under Part 9 of the Rome Statute. Its general cooperation and external relations functions entail establishing and managing relations with States, international organizations and NGOs, including galvanizing general support for the work of the Office as well as advocating and delivering key messages of the Office. The Division is thus primarily responsible for building and reinforcing the strong and extensive network of support and cooperation with States, international organizations and other partners which is necessary for the OTP to carry out its judicial mandate effectively. Furthermore, the Division is responsible for conducting all preliminary examinations of situations, irrespective of whether a situation comes before the Court as a result of a State Party or United Nations Security Council referral or of the Prosecutor’s acting proprio motu pursuant to article 15 of the Rome Statute. The Division thus leads within the Office on matters of jurisdiction, admissibility and interests of justice and provides essential recommendations to the Prosecutor on the opening of new investigations.
