Victims at the International Criminal Court

Show Summary Details


The Lubanga trial was the first to be held before the ICC and therefore the first in which victims have actively participated in the proceedings as independent actors. The various decisions rendered throughout the case have been widely followed by other chambers in subsequent cases before the Court. With the ICC system now in place, victims will have a real opportunity to contribute to chambers’ better understanding of a case. But the Lubanga case also shows that there are a number of lessons to be learned before victims are provided a better possibility to participate in criminal proceedings without risking a fair and expeditious trial.
