The Department of State’s Office of Global Criminal Justice (J/GCJ) works to prevent atrocities, mitigate their effects, and end impunity by fostering justice and accountability to enhance respect for human dignity and stability worldwide.
GCJ seeks to strengthen accountability mechanisms
to investigate those responsible for serious international crimes committed during both armed conflict and times of peace (killings, arbitrary detentions, torture, missing persons) and to encourage the highest standards in investigations conducted by prosecutors and their offices, while also ensuring that the conduct of criminal cases related to such crimes meet internationally accepted legal standards.
GCJ seeks applications for one award that leverages economies of scale to the extent appropriate in/ for two programs- one in/ for South Sudan and one in/for Ukraine.
These programs will build capacity in international human rights, criminal, and humanitarian law (IHL) and training programs in the investigation and prosecution of serious international crimes.
