Since 2016, the EU Day Against Impunity (EUDAI) is celebrated on the 23rd of May under the auspices of the Presidency of the Council of the EU in cooperation with the European Commission, the Genocide Network and the European Union Agency for Criminal Justice Cooperation (Eurojust).

This event aims at raising awareness of impunity related to core international crimes, which encompass the crime of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. Furthermore, it is intended to promote national investigations and prosecutions, to formally recognise the common efforts of the EU Member States and the European Union in enforcing international criminal law, to address the position and participation of victims in criminal proceedings for these crimes, and to reinvigorate Europe-wide commitment to the continuing fight against impunity for these crimes.

This year, the EUDAI is part of the MLA Diplomatic Conference for the Adoption of the Convention on International Cooperation in the Investigation and Prosecution of Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity, War Crimes and other International Crimes. The aim of the Diplomatic Conference is to conduct formal negotiations that will result in the adoption of a new procedural multilateral treaty on mutual legal assistance and extradition in order to facilitate better practical cooperation between States investigating and prosecuting core international crimes.The draft Convention also foresees that State parties should establish extraterritorial jurisdiction over these types of crimes when the alleged offender is present on the State party’s territory.
