FORA.tv Speaker - William R. Pace
Since 1994, William R. Pace has served as the Executive Director of the World Federalist Movement-Institute for Global Policy (WFM-IGP), a 59-year old peace movement dedicated to promoting international democracy, global justice and the rule of law. In 1995, Mr. Pace was asked to serve as the Convenor of the NGO Coalition for an International Criminal Court (CICC), an international network which has grown since that time to comprise more than 2,000 organizations from all regions of the world and all sectors of global civil society.
Over the past decade, the CICC has been nominated several times for the Nobel Peace Prize and has been widely acknowledged as the primary civil society force behind the historic successful adoption of the Rome Statute on the International Criminal Court on July 17, 1998 and in the creation of the Court itself in July 2002 with the 60th ratification of the ICC treaty, the Rome Statute. In 2001, Mr. Pace was awarded the William J. Butler Human Rights Medal from the Urban Morgan Institute for Human Rights for being one of the "cardinal figures in the creation of a Permanent International Criminal Court."
