Welcome to #GlobalJustice – the new blog of the Coalition for the International Criminal Court.
#GlobalJustice aims to provide experts and non-experts alike with the latest news and civil society views on the ICC and Rome Statute system of international justice.
It will host regular updates on all ICC cases and situations as well as developments in the fight against impunity for grave crimes around the world, acting as a platform for our member organizations, particularly those operating at the local or national level.
