The Registrar is the principal administrative officer of the Court, elected by an absolute majority of judges for a term of five years, and is responsible for the non-judicial aspects of the administration and servicing of the Court. This implies providing management and judicial support services to the Court, as well as dealing with those aspects of external affairs and field operations falling within the purview of the Registry. The three divisional Directors support the Registrar through the Registry Management Team in ensuring that the Registry fulfils its tasks effectively and efficiently.
The Immediate Office of the Registrar (IOR) supports the Registrar in setting the Registry’s strategic objectives, overseeing inter-organ relations as well as in enhancing internal communication and driving the development of Court-wide policies. The IOR team also acts as the operational focal point for the Registry’s Divisions. As such, the IOR plays a key role in a number of areas, including the preparation of the Court’s budget, addressing staff related issues and facilitating the conclusion of witness relocation agreements.
