The International Criminal Court Student Network (ICCSN) is an international network that brings together students interested in the ICC, the philosophy and history of international criminal justice, and the connection of international criminal justice to general international law. The ICCSN serves as a forum for discussion and information dissemination on these issues. The ICCSN was founded with the firm conviction that students are the future, and that it is only when students and youth, and policy makers are united in their knowledge and support of the ICC, that the humanitarian norms undergirding the growth of international law continue to develop the institutions and practices that bring these norms to life. There has never been a more opportune time for youth around the world to engage in a serious, informed discussion about the future of international justice. We believe strongly that students are the future - and it is our duty as students to be engaged, learn, debate, challenge, and support the movement towards international justice.
Currently, membership in the ICCSN is limited to students. To be recognized as a member of the ICCSN, you must create a recognized student organization at your school. This typically involves drafting a constitution, bylaws, creating an Executive Board, etc. After providing documentation to the Board of Directors of the ICCSN that you have organized a local chapter of the ICCSN at your school, the ICCSN will recognize your local chapter. Both undergraduate and graduate students are welcome. Click here to email the ICCSN Board of Directors.
