The Right to Reparations under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC)

The content of the right and its implementation in the light of the early case law of the Court

By Stanislas Kabalira

The Rome Statute of the ICC vested the Court with the power to decide on reparations to victims, but does the Statute explicitly create victims' right to reparations? What kind of reparations may redress victims of the most serious international crimes, such as crime of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes? This book endeavors to discuss the major legal issues rising from the introduction of the concept of reparations to victims in international criminal law. The book describes challenges in implementing Article 75 of the Rome Statute and attempts to suggest legal solutions thereto. [Subject: Criminal Law, International Law]
