Redress has submitted a discussion paper to the Trust Fund for Victims at the International Criminal Court on the ‘Progressive Realisation of its Mandate’.

At the international level, victims’ rights to obtain a remedy and reparation have been vastly ignored, mirroring the entrenchment of the impunity of the perpetrators. The ICC’s Trust Fund for Victims is therefore a crucial feature of the ICC, distinguishing it from most ad hoc international criminal tribunals and special courts, which have been unable to give effect to victims’ rights to a remedy and reparation.
