Study Visit to the International Criminal Court

November 1, 2023

The Ukraine Legal Network organised a study visit to the ICC and facilitated interaction between its members and ICC officials. The visit began with a general presentation on the ICC outlining the main characteristics of the Court, including specific crimes within its jurisdiction, complementarity and individual responsibility. The visit gave ULN members an opportunity to witness the courtroom and attend a presentation about the role of participants in proceedings, including as regards the role and qualifications of judges and prosecutors.

Notably, ULN members also had the chance to meet and interact with Dr. Philipp Ambach, Chief of Victims Participation and Reparations Section at the International Criminal Court, who kindly shared his knowledge and experience in the field and outlined how victim participation is organized at the ICC. Dr. Ambach also provided insights into how retraumatization can be avoided while approaching victims, and the process through which victims of international crimes can reach out to the ICC in order to contribute to ongoing investigations and, hopefully soon, prosecutions.
