The International Anti-Corruption Court
The proposal for the International Anti-Corruption Court (“IACC”), similar to but separate from the International Criminal Court, has generated substantial support from leaders across the globe. The proposal for the IACC is also supported by courageous young people from many countries, including leaders of the Maidan uprising in Ukraine. In 2017, President Juan Manuel Santos, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2016, made Colombia the first country to endorse the IACC. In November 2018, Colombia sponsored a resolution calling for the convening of a Special Session of the United Nations General Assembly to discuss “challenges and measures to prevent and combat corruption and strengthen international cooperation.” Days later, Colombia publicly stated that it would advocate for the establishment of the IACC at the 2021 Special Session.
