Empirical research has shown that the selection and recruitment of judges at the international criminal courts may not always conform with the criteria set out in the courts' statutes, and that the requirements can differ from court to court. There is concern that judicial positions are handed out on the basis of membership in informal political networks, also called nepotism. This paper summarizes the previous findings and looks at the question of how an adequate standard of judicial candidates can be maintained across the entire system.
