Thanks to PILPG's work in peace negotiations and transitional justice, our UN Representative, Federica d'Alessandra, was invited to be part of the Civil Society Committee guiding the selection of the UN Secretary General. This was the first time in UN history that the selection process was opened to the public.
PILPG hosted a panel at the 15th Session of the Assembly of States Party to dicuss the legitimacy challenges that the International Criminal Court faces and how the institution can move forward. Chaired by Paul Williams, the roundtable included high-level panelists across the domain of international criminal justice, including from the Office of the Prosecutor, states, and NGOs.
PILPG drafts and conducts negotiation simulations on current conflict areas around the globe in order to train participants in negotiation techniques, priority-setting in conflict situations, and innovative diplomatic solutions to armed conflict. These simulations are open to the lawmaking and international affairs communities.
