Children and the International Criminal Court

Analysis of the Rome Statute through a Children's Rights Perspective

By Cynthia Chamberlain

This book offers a comprehensive analysis of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and its core legal texts from a children's rights perspective. It examines the ICC provisions and its case law, evaluating whether these meet international children's rights standards, particularly with regards to the protection of child victims and witnesses, their participation as victims in ICC proceedings, and their role as beneficiaries in reparations. The book proposes recommendations that could be adopted in order to guarantee children's rights in ICC proceedings. The book will be useful tool for practitioners as well as for academics, both in the area of international criminal law as well as children's rights. *** It is with research such as the one carried out by Dr. Chamberlain that the future jurisprudence of the International Criminal Court will progress and advance the application and interpretation of the Rome Statute with a human rights perspective. -- from the Foreword by Elizabeth Odio Benito, Former Judge International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the International Criminal Court [Subject: International Law, Criminal Law, Human Rights Law, Children's Law]
