These recommendations to the International Criminal Court – authored by the Victims Rights Working Group in collaboration with REDRESS – offer practical means by which the extensive ‘stocktaking’ undertaken at the ICC Review Conference in Kampala on the issue of ‘Impact on Victims and Affected Communities’ may be translated into concrete measures and policies at the ICC. Among others, we suggest the addition of specific, measurable and time- bound targets  into an updated version of the Court’s Strategy in Relation to Victims.

These recommendations follow a detailed paper presented to the Court in 2007, providing numerous examples of measurable strategic results with corresponding indicators and means of verification in the form of a log frame.
