Civitas Maxima believes that local populations, those who bear the consequences of the gravest war crimes and human rights violations committed in their countries, have the right to accessible and unbiased information about any trials of alleged war criminals, even those that take place in other countries. In order to make justice proceedings approachable, we incorporate creative and innovative tools involving grassroots participation of artists, filmmakers, and reporters.

Liberian Quest for Justice

In 2017 we created the Liberian Quest for Justice, a platform for informed debate about the trials of alleged Liberian war criminals. It became a significant source for information to battle the culture of impunity that established itself since the civil wars in Liberia (1989-2003).
