Chapter Summary

This chapter highlights the perspective of the victim, an aspect which is often underrated in national and international society. Then, for the sake of comparative background it reviews the position of the victim in the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY). The chapter discusses some developments in the process prior to the Rome Conference establishing the International Criminal Court (ICC), notably the views of the International Law Commission (ILC) which prepared the initial draft of the ICC Statute, to be followed by efforts pursued by non-governmental actors in support of victims rights and interests which were also reflected in the draft Statute presented to the Rome Conference. It reviews the provisions relating to the position of victims in the Rome Statute. The chapter gives attention to participation of victims in ICC proceedings and reparation through the Trust Fund as evidenced by recent developments.
