Civitas Maxima fights for justice for forgotten victims of international crimes, particularly in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Ivory Coast.

Presence in: Liberia, Switzerland
Focus: Criminal Justice, Peace-building & Transitional Justice

Civitas Maxima facilitates the documentation of international crimes, and pursues the redress of such crimes on behalf of victims who do not have access to justice, by:

(i) collaborating with and building the capacity of local grass-roots partners to document crimes in the state where those crimes were committed;

(ii) coordinating a network of investigators and lawyers to help victims gain access to justice and hold perpetrators accountable before foreign domestic or international courts and tribunals, however, whenever and wherever possible;

(iii) generating awareness and informed debate around victims’ cases, with a view to empowering local communities to pursue their own quests for justice.
