CCIJ works in several program areas other than our casework. These include policy work, particularly efforts to amend Canada’s State Immunity Act to permit civil lawsuits for torture, genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

CCIJ also coordinates the Canadian partnership for a project initiated by the International Criminal Court to provide users around the world with a comprehensive virtual database of information and analysis related to international criminal law and justice.

In 2013, CCIJ launched a social enterprise, The Philippe Kirsch Institute, to sustainably fund our mandate and activities. The Institute offers high-quality programming for practitioners and students, delivered by leading experts in domestic, transnational and international law.
