Amnesty International campaigns for an effective system of international justice, including the following national and international elements, to ensure that: justice is done, that the truth is told and that full reparations are provided to victims when genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, torture, extrajudicial executions and enforced disappearances are committed.
- National justice to investigate and prosecute the crimes committed in their countries before national courts.
- Truth commissions to ensure that the truth about the crimes is told.
- Full reparation to address the suffering of victims through national processes.
- Universal jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute the crimes on behalf of the international community in national courts, regardless of where the crimes were committed or the nationality of the accused or the victim.
- International Criminal Court to investigate and prosecute crimes when national courts are unable or unwilling genuinely to do so.
- Other international and internationalized courts to investigate and prosecute crimes in specific situations.
