League of Arab States
The Coalition and its members have worked with the Arab League since the Preparatory Commissions to strengthen its support for the ICC, encourage and ensure strong participation of Arab countries in the establishment and development of the ICC, as well as to clarify any concerns that Arab League member states might have about ratification or implementation of the Rome Statute. The CICC also closely tracks the developments and discussions at the Ministers of Justice meetings and is able to provide support for efforts to draft model implementation laws.

(22 member states: Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Tunisia, Algeria, Dibouti, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Somalia, Iraq, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Comoros, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Egypt, Morocco, Mauritania, and Yemen)
