On November 15, the Georgetown Law Center for National Security (CNS) announced that they were selected by the U.S., EU, and United Kingdom to lead and coordinate the Atrocity Crimes Advisory Group (ACA), an operational hub responsible for coordinating technical and legal assistance for the government of Ukraine in enacting war crimes accountability for the Russo-Ukraine conflict.  The U.S. State Department gave the CNS an initial grant of $10 million and the project will be led by CNS Director Anna Cave and Ambassador Clint Williamson,[1] who has been leading the ACA since its inception in May.[2]
