Chapter Summary

In this chapter the purpose of reparations ordered by the International Criminal Law (ICC )shall be examined. The ICC Statute does not set forth the purpose of reparation awards to victims. Being aware of the purpose of reparations is essential both for the interpretation of the ICC reparations provisions and for their effective implementation. A brief look at the general purposes and protected interests of international criminal law is necessary in order to elaborate on the purpose of reparations in the ICC context . The purpose of ICC-ordered reparations can be summarized as two-fold: firstly, it is in line with contemporary concepts of justice, that those found responsible for a crime are not only punished, but also obliged to repair. Secondly, reparations awarded by the ICC serve to complement its role to hold accountable individuals responsible for the commission of crimes under its jurisdiction.
