   schema:description ""Since World War II there have been many conflicts throughout the world, leaving millions of atrocity crime victims. Created in response to such outrages, the International Criminal Court (ICC) is the first and only permanent juridical body prosecuting genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. Under a new approach the ICC encourages direct victim participation in war crime trials. Victims' Rights and Advocacy at the International Criminal Court presents the first comprehensive guidance on this innovative dynamic, analyzing the procedural rules that apply and the practical problems in advocating for victims before the ICC. Mr. Funk provides an overview of ICC trial procedure, a candid assessment of the performance of the ICC and its predecessor tribunals, and a guide to the development of victims' rights under international law. He identifies areas needing reform and reconsideration, providing concrete solutions, while drawing on his vast experience to suggest ways in which the ICC can improve the lot of victims of the world's worst crimes. This second edition provides a detailed analysis of the newly-recognized right of victims to participate in the trials of their accused abusers. The author guides the reader through this unique, controversial body of procedural and substantive rights for victims of atrocity crimes, and also discusses how to qualify as Legal Counsel for Victims, and how to seek reparations. In addition, the author provides updated caselaw and other information to reflect the ICC's current positions on victim involvement and related procedure, as well as text to show how these changes in the law affect overall ICC procedure and advocacy"--Unedited summary from book jacket."@en ;
