On March 27, the ABA welcomed International Criminal Court President Judge Chile Eboe-Osuji to its Washington, DC offices for a discussion of matters of mutual concern in international criminal justice. The discussion included ABA representatives from the ABA’s International Criminal Court Project, Criminal Justice Section, Center for Human Rights, and Governmental Affairs Office, as well as other civil society colleagues.
Since 1978, ABA policy has supported the establishment of a permanent international criminal tribunal and urged greater US governmental cooperation with the ICC to ensure accountability for atrocity crimes.
The American Bar Association’s (ABA) International Criminal Court (ICC) Project is an independent initiative of the ABA Center for Human Rights and Criminal Justice Section that advances international criminal justice and US-ICC relations through advocacy, education and practical legal assistance.
