For more than 10 years, the Trust Fund for Victims (TFV) at the International Criminal Court (ICC) has ensured victims receive reparative value for the harm they suffered as victims of genocide, crimes against humanity, the crime of aggression and war crimes falling within the jurisdiction of the ICC.
- Reparations Mandate: The TFV’s reparations mandate serves to implement Court-ordered reparation awards directed against a convicted person. For that purpose, the TFV either distributes the funds from the convicted person and/or uses its voluntary contributions upon the Board of Director’s decision to complement a reparations award. It aims to help survivors back into a path of healing and reintegration.
- Assistance Mandate: The TFV assistance mandate provides reparative value foremost to the most vulnerable victims, their families and their communities. These victims have suffered from the gravest forms of violence. The TFV teams work in collaboration with local partners to deliver life-changing programmes including mental health, medical interventions, and material support.
