Why is our work important?


The ICC is the only international court that prosecutes criminals who commit mass violations of human rights, such as genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity-- the very worst of the worst. Atrocity victims worldwide rely on the work of the ICC to bring them justice and redress, and to hold their oppressors accountable. We at AMICC believe that the ICC’s work is fundamentally aligned with the core American values of liberty and justice for all. AMICC functions as the coordinator and cornerstone of the coalition of American NGOs committed to achieving full US support and participation in the ICC. Our constituents depend on us for advocacy strategy, for the distribution of resources and informational and political analysis. We have a responsibility to our 30+ member organizations to maintain the high standard of organizational management which they have come to expect from AMICC.

Your support is essential to our coalition and the continuance

of this important work.


“For more than a decade, AMICC has worked tirelessly on all issues regarding the relationship between the United States and the International Criminal Court. It provides accurate, up-to-date information about the Court, as well as information regarding developments in the United States relating to the Court. It has an amazingly comprehensive website and is always my go to source when I need clear factual information that I can trust.  


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.”

Who is AMICC?



Since 2001, the American NGO Coalition for the International Criminal Court (AMICC) has been the driving force in strengthening America’s relations with the International Criminal Court (ICC) through education and advocacy. It is paramount that we maintain ties with the Court- especially now as the ICC gains momentum and legitimacy, processing a full caseload.


The international NGO Coalition for the ICC, now consisting of 2,500 non-governmental organizations worldwide, wanted a coalition in the United States to join its membership. At their request, AMICC was founded in 2001 by John Washburn, an extremely experienced former US diplomat and recipient of State Department honors, who serves without salary, with the support of the services provided by Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights.
