About /What is the AMICC? Mission: AMICC is a coalition of non-governmental organizations committed to achieving full United States support for the International Criminal Court (ICC) 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. They take pride in the historic role of the US in promoting the development of international criminal law. They emphasize that the ICC expresses and implements values traditionally championed by the United States, including international justice and the rule of law … (read more about Mission).

STRATEGY:

AMICC members have concluded that the best way to achieve US support of the ICC and ratification of the Court’s Rome Statute is to work together as a coalition. In AMICC, they can join their diverse membership, resources, and experience in a nationwide campaign, by incorporating ICC activities into their ongoing programming, while continuing to conduct their own independent activities reflecting their individual membership interests. The diversity of AMICC’s membership organizations reflects the diverse interests the Court addresses.

The Coalition supports and promotes grassroots activity in support of the Court, including the formation of local alliances of individuals and organizations whose interests will be served and advanced by the ICC and thus by the US relationship with it. These include bar associations, women’s groups, human rights organizations, religious organizations, veterans’ groups, victims organizations, students and young adults, and others. These organizations may have sharply differing views on other political and social issues, but work effectively together to support a Court which implements their common intense opposition to international atrocities and to holding accountable those most responsible for them. Local ICC alliances combine their diverse constituencies to create local public awareness of and support for the importance of US cooperation in a strong ICC. (Read more about Local Alliances).

These locally based activities complement the work of the Washington Working Group on the ICC (WICC), which has many members in common with AMICC, in monitoring congressional and executive branch action on the ICC, and spreading understanding of the ICC throughout Congress and the Administration.
