American Friends of Civitas Maxima

Independent Legal Representation of Victims of War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity

Civitas Maxima (CH) A Project of C | KBFUS Funds

Civitas Maxima ensures the coordination of a network of international lawyers and investigators who work for the interests of women, children and men who have been victims of international crimes, particularly war crimes and crimes against humanity. The three core functions of Civitas Maxima are the documentation of these crimes, including the preservation of the information as long as necessary, the pursuit of justice for victims in any national or international legal forum with jurisdiction and building the capacity of partner organizations in countries where the crimes were committed whenever appropriate. Civitas Maxima targets only situations where no legal action has been successful in holding perpetrators accountable.
