||The International Association of Penal Law was established in 1924 to continue the activities of the International Union of Penal Law (1889) and is open to all those who in the different countries devote themselves to the study of criminal law or are concerned with its application and tend to promote the development of legislation and institutions with a view towards improving a more humane and efficient administration of justice. It first called for the establishment of an international criminal court at its first congress in 1926 and has been since very active in the creation of the ICC.|
