International Justice

Insan’s main focus when it comes to International Justice is to see countries in a state of transition (specifically the Arab Spring in this case) signing the Rome Statute granting the International Criminal Court (ICC) jurisdiction to act as a preventive measure on crimes against humanity.

In partnership with the Damascus Centre for Human Rights Studies; the M. Yaser Tabbara Law Firm in Chicago, USA; YASA, the International Kurdish Centre for Legal Studies and Consultancy; and the Union of Syrian Kurds in the Netherlands, Insan submitted to the ICC prosecutor “Article 15 communication on Crimes against Humanity committed in Syria,” which can be viewed here.

Additionally, In light of the situation in Syria, Insan is currently working with a number of partners to get the UN Security Council to refer Syria to the International Criminal Court.
