Reparative justice for international crime victims in Africa


This event is co-hosted by the Institute for Security Studies and the Government of Ireland.

African states are on the back foot when it comes to redressing victims of international crime. Reparations for the millions of victims in post-conflict African states have at best been an afterthought and at worst, a tool for political mileage, often around elections. Lessons from approaches pursued at the international and national levels can help states meet their obligations to redress victims.

This side event will discuss findings from a new ISS report and policy brief on different methods for redressing victims of international crime.

Attendance at this side event at the 18th ICC Assembly of States Parties requires prior accreditation from the Secretariat of the ASP.

Simultaneous translation English-French is available at the event.

Chair: Allan Ngari, Senior Researcher, ISS

Welcome and opening: Amb Kevin Kelly, Embassy of Ireland in The Hague
