Summary

At the international level, there is an increasing recognition that victims can claim reparations from those convicted for crimes that caused harm on victims. The International Criminal Court contains the first reparations regime among international criminal tribunals. This chapter seeks to examine the human right to reparations as enjoyed by victims of international crimes at the International Criminal Court and demonstrate the interaction between international human rights law and international criminal law at the reparations system of the International Criminal Court. Thus, this chapter has three sections. First, human rights clauses of the International Criminal Court’s reparations system are discussed. Second, the status and procedural rights of victims as reparations claimants at the International Criminal Court are examined. Third, how the International Criminal Court Chambers have used and adapted international human rights law to interpret and apply reparations provisions of the International Criminal Court instruments is analysed.
