Societal Reintegration of Victims of Core International Crimes
A seminar on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the entry into force of the Statute of the International Criminal Court, organised by the Forum for International Criminal and Humanitarian Law, with support from the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in co-operation with the University of Oslo (Faculty of Law, Norwegian Centre for Human Rights)
This seminar considers some of the main issues raised by the reintegration into society of victims of core international crimes.
What are the concrete needs of victims for successful reintegration?
What are the relevant limitations of the current ICC mandates regarding victim participation, assistance and reparations?
How far does the responsibility of the international community extend? Is there a need for national regulation to foster the societal reintegration of victims of core international crimes?
These are common challenges for international and domestic criminal jurisdictions, including for legislators, departments of justice, health and immigration, and, especially at the local level, civil society actors and relevant health professionals. The seminar directs attention to the enduring interest of numerous victims affected by serious violations of international criminal law: the return to a more normal life. This concern should be a guiding principle for all those interested in transitional criminal justice.
The seminar attendance is free of charge, but there are only a limited number of seats available for nonspeakers. Email registration prior to 31 May 2012 is required.
Confirmed registrants will receive an e-mail message, including further information on venue. Foreign nonspeakers must make their own travel and accommodation arrangements to attend.
