Regional Networks
The success of the NGO campaign for the establishment of a fair, effective and independent International Criminal Court can be attributed in large measure to the existence of strong national and regional ICC networks all over the world. The CICC national coalitions and regional networks are typically comprised of a diverse range of civil society groups working within a single country or region, including NGOs, academics, lawyers, bar associations and others. Through these networks, strategic plans for the achievement of all goals of this campaign, in particular ratification and implementation of the Rome Statute, and widespread education about the Court and the Statute, are developed and carried out. To get involved in the ICC campaign at the national or regional level, please contact the appropriate member of the CICC Secretariat's Regional Team.

Teams on Issues
The CICC has a number of NGO Teams on Issues, mainly on issues related to the operations of the Court, in which member NGOs are encouraged to participate. The Teams are set up in order to facilitate, focus and coordinate the NGOs input, divide labor among NGO experts and ensure coverage of all key issues – recognizing that the issues are many, while members have limited resources. The Coalition wishes to involve our wider membership in the teams and invites all members interested in these issues and willing to be actively engaged to contact us at: [email protected]

Details on the Teams

The CICC’s thematic caucuses were formed during the UN Preparatory Committee meetings that were considering a draft Statute for the ICC from 1996-1998, for the purpose of ensuring that the perspectives of particular constituencies were incorporated into all aspects of the negotiations. Each of the caucuses provided critical input during the Rome Conference in 1998, resulting in a treaty that is much stronger than it would otherwise have been from the perspective of women, children, victims, faith-based groups and the anti-nuclear movement.

Since the Rome Conference, the caucuses have re-shaped their goals and continue to bring unique and important perspectives to the work of the Assembly of States Parties, the ratification campaign, the work to implement the treaty’s provisions into national law, the worldwide outreach and education effort, and the effective functioning of the Court itself.
