FIDH Report: Enhancing Victims’ Rights Before the ICC - A View from Situation Countries on Victims’ Rights at the International Criminal Court

On the eve of the opening of the 12th session of the Assembly of States Parties to the ICC Statute, which will dedicate one part of its agenda to discussions on victims, FIDH is publishing a report entitled "Enhancing Victims’ Rights before the ICC: A View from Situation Countries on Victims’ Rights at the ICC".

Between 30 September and 4 October 2013, FIDH organised an exchange session and meetings with a group of 11 men and women, experts and representatives from local civil society from situation countries who have worked with victims of Rome Statute crimes in the field and/or have interacted with the ICC staff or have good knowledge of the Court.

The participants from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Mali, Côte d’Ivoire, Sudan and the Central African Republic (CAR), joined FIDH representatives led by its President, Karim Lahidji, in The Hague to discuss issues pertaining to victims’ and affected communities’ views on investigations, victims’ participation, representation and reparations. Their opinions and perspectives are the basis of these pages.
