The Founding Office for the International Nuremberg Principles Academy supports the work of the Founding Committee in establishing an institute for the implementation of the Nuremberg Principles for international criminal law.
To mark the tenth anniversary of the entry into force of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC), the new international criminal justice institution in Nuremberg (currently in its founding stage), in cooperation with the Wayamo Communication Foundation and with the financial support of the German Federal Foreign Office, hosted the conference "Through the Lens of Nuremberg - The International Criminal Court at its Tenth Anniversary" at Nuremberg's Palace of Justice on 4 and 5 October 2012.
Looking through the lens of the Nuremberg legacy, the conference celebrated the advancement of international criminal law, the achievements of the ICC during its first decade, and assessed the contemporary challenges facing the Court.

In 2010, the Federal German parliament provided finances for the establishment of an "Institute for the Implementation of the Nuremberg Principles in International Criminal Law". The Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany was allocated the task of administering this budget. The City of Nuremberg, represented by the municipal museums and the city's human rights office, took on the task of project management, because of the initiative of the board of trustees of the Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds.
The City of Nuremberg commissioned a scientific committee to prepare a project and feasibility study, and established an office for coordinating the project. During the second half of 2010, work on the project and feasibility study began, and it was completed in autumn 2011.
The scientific committee recommends establishing an International Academy Nuremberg Principles (IANP). The IANP, as an expert forum, is intended to contribute to securing peace by means of law, through multi-disciplinary research and target-group specific training on international criminal law topics, as well as human rights education.
The first pilot projects will be carried out in order to build up the practical work of the IANP in successive steps.
In spring 2011, the Lord Mayor of the City of Nuremberg, Dr. Ulrich Maly, and the spokesman for the Board of Trustees of the Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds, Dr. Oscar Schneider, welcomed members of the International Expert Advisory Council to the first joint meeting with the Scientific Committee.
The International Expert Advisory Council comprises both scientists and people dealing with the practical application of the principles, and with its expert advice has supported the establishment of the Academy.
The members of the International Expert Advisory Council are:
Prof. John Q. Barrett, Prof. Dr. Theo van Boven, Dr. Serge Brammertz, Prof. Dr. Susanne Buckley-Zistel, Prof. Dr. Norbert Frei, Dr. Monika Hauser, Dr. Hans-Peter Kaul, Dr. Stefan Kirsch, Dr. Claudia Lohrenscheit und Prof. Dr. Bruno Simma.
