Chapter Summary

When the Statute of the International Criminal Court was adopted on a beautiful Roman summers day in 1998, probably few could have guessed that by July 2002, the International Criminal Court (ICC) would commence work. This chapter considers some of the challenges facing the ICC with respect to victims participation and reparations. It points out how the ICCs referral system may complicate victims access to the Court. The chapter discusses the strengths and weaknesses of the newly adopted Trust Funds Regulations and finally looks at the ICCs first procedural decision on victims participation, as an early indicator of the Courts approach towards victims redress. One of the key questions before negotiators in Rome was whether or not to provide victims with some degree of access to the Courts judicial proceedings.
