U.S. Faith and Ethics Network for the International Criminal Court
The Faith and Ethics Network for the International Criminal Court (FENICC) believes that the principals embodied in the International Criminal Court (ICC)—justice and brotherhood—gives religious organizations a unique obligation to raise awareness at a grassroots level and shape this still young institution of international justice. Read FENICC's founding statement (PDF).
The Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO) has been, and remains, a steadfast advocate for the International Criminal Court and U.S. ratification of the Rome Statues. Since the preliminary talks for forming the court began in 1990s, when former Executive Director Elaine Harvey was in office, the UU-UNO has been an active member of what then was the Faith-based Caucus for an International Criminal Court. When the International Criminal Court began operating in 2002, the Caucus was reshaped and expanded into the Faith and Ethics Network for the International Criminal Court (FENICC), with two independent branches, International FENICC and U.S. FENICC. The UU-UNO has been one of U.S. FENICC most active members. Currently, Bruce Knotts, Director of the UU-UNO, is Chair for the U.S. Faith and Ethic Network for the International Criminal Court.
