In December 2018, Denmark contributes DKK 1.5 million (slightly over €200,000) to the Trust Fund for Victims (TFV) at the International Criminal Court (ICC), earmarked to support victim survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV).

We believe the Trust Fund for Victims is doing excellent work in supporting victims of sexual and gender based crimes within the jurisdiction of the ICC. Denmark is proud to focus its support to rebuild the lives of victims of such heinous crimes, and is committed to bring reparative justice to victims within the Rome Statute system. We hope other States Parties will join us in supporting the valuable work of the TFV.”


H.E. Jens-Otto Horslund, Ambassador of Denmark in the Netherlands

Denmark was amongst first States Parties to respond to the TFV donor appeal in 2008 to support victim survivors of sexual and gender based violence.   I am grateful to see Denmark continue to support the Trust Fund, and through it numerous survivors as they seek justice and a better future.”


Baroness Arminka Helić, Board member, Trust Fund for Victims

In 2002, the TFV was established under the Rome Statute, in order to support recovery and resilience for victims of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression.

The mission of the TFV is to respond  to  the  harm  resulting  from  the crimes  within  the  jurisdiction  of  the  ICC  by  ensuring  the  rights  of  victims  and  their families  through  the  provision  of  reparation and assistance programmes for them to return to  a  dignified  and  contributory  life  within their communities.
