About Parliamentarians for Global Action (PGA)

Founded in 1978, Parliamentarians for Global Action (PGA) is the largest non-governmental, cross-party network of individual lawmakers, with approximately 1,200 members in 152 parliaments worldwide. PGA legislators champion human rights and the rule of law, democracy, human security, inclusion, gender equality, and justice, including climate justice. Using a peer-to-peer methodology, working across political parties, and creating space for legislators to meet with civil society organizations and human rights defenders, PGA’s vision is to contribute to creating a rules-based international order for a more equitable, safe, sustainable, and democratic world. The network is supported by a Secretariat, with its main office in New York City and an office in The Hague, Netherlands.

PGA’s Campaign for the Universality and Effectiveness of the System of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC), launched in September 1998, aims to promote a universal culture of upholding the rule of law, human rights, and human dignity by fighting impunity for the commission of genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and the crime of aggression. These efforts align with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16, notably Target 16.3, which commits governments to promote the rule of law at the national and international levels and ensure equal access to justice for all.

About the Consultative Assembly of Parliamentarians on the International Criminal Court and the Rule of Law (CAP-ICC)

Within the Campaign’s margins and to adapt its efforts to the needs of specific countries, groups of countries, or regions, the PGA Secretariat works with MPs at the national, regional, and international levels. The CAP-ICC, held every two years, is the Campaign’s largest project and is the only global gathering of legislators focused solely on the ICC. Its meetings provide a unique and invaluable opportunity for several hundred legislators of all continents to actively participate in discussions and define strategies to advance the strategic goals of mobilizing in favor of the Rome Statute of the ICC.
