Victims’ Rights to Participate and seek Reparation from the ICC

This booklet aims to inform victims of their rights to participate in ICC proceedings where eligible, and the possibilities of seeking reparation. The booklet gives a general overview of the ICC’s mandate in relation to victims and then highlights how victims’ rights before the ICC are being exercised in the specific context of Kenya. It also seeks to enable victims to make an informed decision on whether they want to engage with the ICC by engaging questions such as What is the ICC’s mandate and scope? Who is considered a victim? Can a victim participate in proceedings?

These answers plus victims’ rights and avenues for redress are discussed in context of the Kenyan ICC trials of 2012-2013.
