Civitas Maxima

Civitas Maxima was founded in Geneva in 2012 to assist victims of international crimes by documenting these crimes and seeking accountability for them in foreign or international courts when domestic courts fail to act. It is currently focused on Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Côte d’Ivoire, where it is engaged in documenting war crimes and crimes against humanity and seeking prosecution of perpetrators, primarily on the basis of extraterritorial jurisdiction.
