Civil society calls on the European Union to appoint a Special Representative for International Humanitarian law and International Justice 

A group of civil society organizations are calling on the EU to establish a special representative to lead its work to promote compliance with international humanitarian law and seek justice for victims of Rome Statute crimes. The organizations are the Coalition for the International Criminal Court, Human Rights Watch, the International Federation for Human Rights, No Peace Without Justice, Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice, and the World Federalist Movement-Institute for Global Policy.The proposal is gaining traction.On 29 June, 34 members of the European Parliament sent a letter to the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini, calling for her to urgently appoint an EU Special Representative for International Humanitarian Law and International Justice.European lawmakers said, “Now, at a time when the EU and its Member States represent one of the world’s few pillars left supporting an international rules-based order, we need the EU’s principled leadership more than ever, and this leadership would clearly be advanced through a Special Representative dedicated to International Humanitarian Law and International Justice.”
