Chapter Summary

The Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) has gone further than those of other international tribunals in incorporating processes that positively affirm victims' dignity, including their right to be kept informed about legal proceedings, special measures of protection and support, the ability of victims to participate in legal proceedings independent from any role they may have as prosecution witnesses, and their right to claim reparations before the ICC for the harm they suffered. This chapter considers the issues and challenges relating to the operationalisation of the Court's reparations mandate. It assesses the provisions in the Statute governing reparations and analyses the early jurisprudence of the Court with a view to considering the impact this may have on giving practical effect to the reparations mandate.
