WHO WE ARE
AMICC is a coalition of non-governmental organizations committed to achieving full United States support for the International Criminal Court and the earliest possible US ratification of the Court's Rome Statute.
AMICC members believe that strong participation by the US in the ICC is essential to the future of the Court as an effective institution. We take pride in the historic role of the US in promoting the development of international criminal law. We emphasize that the ICC expresses and implements values traditionally championed by the United States, including international justice and the rule of law.
AMICC is also the only organization in the United States that has for its mission advocacy on behalf of the Court with US citizens, government officials and policy makers. It provides an indispensable service to the American public, and to academics and policy makers working on ICC issues. Under the leadership of John Washburn, its long-time convener, AMICC has provided support, information and connection to all issues relating to the ICC.
