AMICC will participate in the twelfth annual meeting of The Assembly of States Parties in The Hague on November 20-28.The four members of the Coalition’s delegation will monitor and do their best to influence the Assembly’s work on issues important to our advocacy in the United States. Among these are the budget, oversight including the Independent Oversight Mechanism, enforcement of arrest warrants, due process - especially the rights of the defense, and the role and participation of victims in the Court’s prosecutions, hearings and trials.
More information on the session is available here. While it is underway, watch for blogs and tweets from AMICC on breaking events.
While efforts are being made to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, the international community speculates as to whether or not the conflict will come before the ICC. In a new paper for AMICC, Maryne Rodot explores the two main scenarios that could lead the Court to build cases involving Palestinian and Israeli individuals: either as a result of the recent referral by Comoros, or through a referral of the situation to the ICC by Palestine. Read Maryne Rondot’s analysis, The ICC and the Israel-Palestine Conflict (August 13, 2013, PDF).
AMICC warmly welcomes a new alliance. It is based in Saint Paul, Minnnesota which with Minneapolis forms the Twin Cities urban area, one of the largest in the Middle West. This is the home of several NGOs with international programs devoted to human rights, the resolution of conflicts and services to their survivors. We are delighted that Ellen Kennedy, the executive director of one of these, World Without Genocide, will be the alliance leader. World Without Genocide is based at the William Mitchell College of Law where she is a professor. As a well-known activist and educator with wide connections in the Twin Cities and internationally, Professor Kennedy is an ideal leader for our newest alliance. Our Convener will go in early September to Saint Paul to join in a strong start of events and consultations for the alliance.
