What we do

For the victims of crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide whose voices are often left unheard and whose suffering is forgotten, the Court set forth two mandates of the TFV: (i) to implement Court-ordered reparations and (ii) to provide physical and psychosocial rehabilitation or material support to victims of crimes that fall within the jurisdiction of the Court.

The Trust Fund’s reparations mandate is related to specific judicial proceedings before the Court that result in a conviction. The reparations mandate is beginning to play a larger role in the Trust Fund’s work as the Court’s first criminal proceedings conclude. With four cases reaching the reparations stage in 2016, this represents an exciting and important opportunity for the Trust Fund to develop and strengthen its institutional partnership with the ICC in order to ensure the success of the reparations regime laid out in the Rome Statute.
