International criminal courts were created to address issues of impunity for the gravest of crimes, and undoubtedly victims are meant to be the direct beneficiaries of the justice process. Traditionally, however, victims have not always featured prominently in international criminal trials. In response to this perceived oversight, victims have been provided broad rights at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) and the International Criminal Court (ICC). After addressing the theoretical underpinnings of criminal justice and the development of the procedural role of the victim in domestic criminal jurisdictions and international human rights discourse, this article will examine the rights of victims at the ECCC and ICC and explore what challenges arise when victims are afforded a greater role in the international criminal process. To structure the analysis, the framework will focus on two central concepts, namely the unique characteristics of international criminal proceedings and human rights standards.
