The IICI was founded prior to the establishment of the International Criminal Court in recognition that there was no comprehensive training programme for investigators of international crimes. In 2003 the IICI established its headquarters in The Hague, the Netherlands. The IICI was initially developed with the advice and participation of staff members from the International Criminal Tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Rwanda (ICTR), the former Chief of the Irish Defence Forces, the Irish Centre for Human Rights, the Royal Netherlands Army School for Peace Missions and Physicians for Human Rights. It has since benefited from the assistance, often pro bono, of investigators, prosecutors, police officers, psychologists, military advisors and others from many countries and organisations.
