Bringing China into the Fold of International Justice


“The general public in China largely perceives the ICC as a remote institution, irrelevant to their daily lives,” says Michael Liu, founder and secretary general of the Chinese Initiative on International Criminal Justice.

“Few Chinese are aware of International Criminal Justice Day, which is now a global event. And even fewer appreciate its significance,” Liu adds.

But he says attitudes are shifting because of initiatives like the establishment of the China Network for the International Criminal Court, in July 2013. And he's doing what he can to change minds even more. He wants to show his country why the international justice system is beneficial and relevant to China.
