2012 | Luke Moffett: Reparative complementarity: ensuring an effective remedy for victims in the reparation regime of the International criminal court

in: The International Journal of Human Rights 17(3) 2013 

 In this article the author discusses reparation for victims in International criminal court in the light of its first reparation decision. He suggests that based on the jurisprudence developed so far in international law and human rights law to provide redress to victims, international criminal court needs to go beyond the limitations set by ‘individual criminal responsibility’. Moreover the article examines whether the trust fund for victims or state responsibility resolve the challenges faced by reparations in the Rome statute. The article concludes by finding that reparations at the ICC will only be successful through reparative complementarity with state parties.
