The Australian Centre for International Justice (ACIJ) is a newly established, independent, not-for-profit and specialist legal centre working to develop Australia’s capacity to investigate and prosecute atrocity crimes. The ACIJ aims to provide access to justice to survivors of serious and egregious violations of human rights, in particular the crimes of torture, war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. The ACIJ employs strategies to combat the impunity of the perpetrators to seek justice, redress and accountability for the survivors of these crimes.

 

The ACIJ endeavours to place Australia as a new avenue for accountability on the global stage and contribute to ending the impunity of those responsible for committing atrocity crimes.

In addition, ACIJ works with partners locally and abroad to ensure Australia’s conduct is consistent with international human rights law and international humanitarian law.
