Justice for victims is often regarded as the raison d’être and rallying call of international criminal justice mechanisms. While this goal drives the work of hybrid and ad hoc international criminal tribunals and the International Criminal Court, they face criticism for not doing enough for victims of mass atrocities. How have the roles and implications of victims’ participation, as well as developments in human rights doctrine, victimology, and transitional justice, affected the development of victims’ rights in international criminal justice?

Dr. Rudina Jasini, Fellow of Law, University of Oxford; Co-Leader, ESRC Impact Acceleration Award Project on Advancing the Impact of Victim Participation at the International Criminal Court: Developing Avenues for Collaboration; current Defense Counsel, Kosovo Specialist Chambers.

Lecture Chair: Ruti G. Teitel, Ernst C. Stiefel Professor of Comparative Law, NYLS; Director, Center for International Law and the Institute for Global Law, Justice, and Policy; author of Globalizing Transitional Justice (Oxford University Press, 2014)
