On the occasion of International Justice Day, the 21st anniversary of the adoption of the Rome Statute creating the International Criminal Court, the Australian Centre for International Justice (ACIJ) is committed to helping ensure Australia defends, supports and strengthens the Court.
The ACIJ is a newly established independent and not-for-profit specialist legal centre working to ensure Australia complies with its obligations to investigate and prosecute international crimes, a fundamental part of the Rome Statute system, noting that the Rome Statute recalls the duty of every State to exercise its criminal jurisdiction over those responsible for international crimes.
