War Crimes

The Department of State’s Office of War Crimes Issues advises the Secretary of State and formulates U.S. policy responses to atrocities committed worldwide. It also coordinates U.S. government support for war crimes accountability in Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Cambodia, Iraq, and other regions. The office works closely with other governments, international institutions, non-government organizations, and the courts to help bring those responsible for war crimes to justice. The Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues has a range of diplomatic, legal, economic, military, and intelligence tools at their disposal to help secure peace and stability, ensure accountability, and establish the rule of law.
