Amending the Rome Statute

iccOne of our main activities currently is lobbying heads of state to support us in changing the jurisdictional foundation at the International criminal court in The Hague by introducing a fifth crime against peace: Ecocide

It took a group of our dedicated international environmental lawyers nearly a year to formulate an ready to take proposal for an amendment to the Rome Statute. Based on this amendment we are currently trying to convince heads of state to support our idea of introducing Ecocide as a fifth crime against peace.
