Building a Global Framework for Protecting Human Rights

The WFMC supports the protection of human rights through building global human rights frameworks. We believe that reinforcing international justice requires reinforcing the International Criminal Court's (ICC) ability to hold human rights violators accountable. The WFMC is a long-time member of the global Coalition for the International Criminal Court and continues to monitor progress of the ICC and related international justice issues.

HOW DO WE SUPPORT GLOBAL HUMAN RIGHTS?

Reforming International Human Rights Institutions

World Federalists believe in the central role of the ICC in maintaining international accountability for the most serious crimes of international concern. As World Federalists, we also believe that the ICC offers a unique opportunity to fill the impunity gap in our world. The WFMC tracks the ongoing ICC cases in our biannual publication Mondial. We also track Canada's Human Rights Commitments.
