Media-Archive is one of the ICSF (International Crimes Strategy Forum) projects which aims to  document and archive media-coverage of international crimes and justice initiatives around the world. Please contact the Archive Admin (icsf-medarch AT if you need, or wish to provide us, any assistance.

International Crimes Strategy Forum (ICSF) is a coalition of activists and organisations committed to the cause of bringing to justice the perpetrators of war crimes during the Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971. United, the coalition stands against all forms of impunity. The coalition has been launched in acknowledgement of the enormity of task involving prosecution of the war criminals of Bangladesh after a lapse of 39 years since the atrocities were originally committed. The Forum also recognises the complexities, confusions and differences that now surround the issue of prosecution.

The aims and objectives of ICSF-coalition are:

1. Facilitating documentation, archiving and research based on existing data and evidence;
2. Carrying out new research on pertinent issues as well as gathering new evidence;
3. Generating consensus on key strategic issues;
4. Networking with other civil society actors and experts, both in Bangladesh and abroad, with a view to finding common grounds for collaborative activism and generating support;
5. Lobbying with the formal official actors and working with the media, both in Bangladesh and abroad;
6. Monitoring progress of prosecution initiatives and adopting strategies to counteract developments that can potentially delay or defeat the cause of justice;
7. Covering the trials thoroughly and providing in-depth feedback by involving experts in the process.

Our core values and approcahes:

Democracy. Human Rights. Justice. Rooted in non-elite, non-exclusive, collective and participatory premises, the attitudes (as well as qualities) that we seek to promote within and outside the coalition are: excellence, dedication, boldness and perfection. All forms of elitist and/or self-propagating tendencies are, therefore, resisted. We believe, this is the kind of mindset that time demands of this nation in order for it to succeed in bringing the history back on track through securing long-overdue justice.

    Dear sir/madam
    Hello In charge
    I visited your website and was deeply inspired. I saw a beautiful material present on the site. I found that you are doing a great work for Crimes and Justice people in the mean time. In fact I wanted to say that I am translator and I have been translating materials of various organizations in different languages. I have the command on English, Urdu, Punjabi, Sariaki and Arabic even. These are such languages which are commonly used in all over Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and many other parts of the world. So I desire that if that very material can be translated into various languages so that more and more people have this light of knowledge. . I wish that I can help you in this good work of the Lord which you are performing in the world. I can do also the work of video typing, English typing, Urdu Typing in different ways for example I can type for you in CorelDraw, MS.Word, In page etc.We can also do the recording work.
