This project will examine what kind of reparations would be most appropriate for people living in refugee camps who are victims of violations of the most serious crimes of concern to the global community. The project will consider how reparations would need to be devised to distinguish them from humanitarian assistance. It will also analyse to whom, how and when such reparations should be provided.
Established in 2002, the mission of the ICC Trust Fund for Victims (TFV) is to support and implement programmes that address harm resulting from genocide, crimes of humanity, war crimes and the crime of aggression. To achieve this mission, the TFV repairs the harm of victims of crimes over which the ICC has jurisdiction by providing physical, psychological rehabilitation or material support, or implements reparations for the benefit of victims as ordered by the ICC against a convicted person. The overall goal of such reparative measures is to allow victims to return to a dignified and contributory life within their communities, the TFV contributes to realising sustainable and long-lasting peace by promoting restorative justice and reconciliation.
This project is open to postgraduate students who are taking the Human Rights Centre Clinic Module (HU902). Applications are now closed for 2021/2022.
