Victims' Rights and Advocacy at the International Criminal Court

T. Markus Funk

  • Conducts the first in-depth analysis of the important, complex, and often misunderstood role of victims at the ICC.
  • Includes a primer on why the ICC was established, as well as on how it is structured, financed, and operated.
  • Combines international justice theory with a practical discussion of developing ICC practice, procedure, and evidentiary rules.
  • Engages in a frank and earnest discussion of the disjunction between the Court's public proclamations of its intended mission and its actual results to date.
  • Draws comparisons with the under-performance of other ad hoc criminal tribunals, pointing out reasons for these shortfalls, as well as proposals for reform.
  • Uses extensive citation to authority to present proposals for reform.
