The two strategic goals of the TFV are the following:
- Impact: As a result of the implementation of reparations awards and assistance programmes, victims and their families overcome harm, lead a dignified life and contribute to reconciliation and peacebuilding within their communities. Impact is predominantly achieved by the use of voluntary contributions and private donations, as well as of fines and assets recovered in relation to ICC convictions.
- Performance: The Trust Fund for Victims, acting in alignment with the ICC, ensures good governance, accountability and transparency throughout its activities and is assured of adequate capacities and resources to operate its reparative programmes, while adhering to exigencies of efficiency, effectiveness and proportionality. Performance is predominantly achieved by the use of the regular budget of the TFV Secretariat, part of the ICC’s budget, as constituted by the assessed contributions of States Parties to the Rome Statute.
The TFV’s advocacy, cross-cutting impact and performance, and relating to vision and mission, is that the Rome Statute’s harm-based, victim-centred approach to reparative justice is internationally recognised and finds adoption as a best practice.
Vision, mission, values, strategic goals and their related intermediate goals and activity milestones, together provide the framework for the TFV’s theory of change, incorporating results based management through the Activity Plan (Annex B) that is adaptable to evolving circumstances, as well as performance monitoring and evaluation.
