This book offers a practical guide for advocates interested in the representation of victims before the International Criminal Court (ICC). Prepared by experts responsible for the advocacy training of the International Criminal Court's List of Counsel members, and written in a readily accessible style, it provides a firm grounding in relevant legal doctrine, essential advocacy techniques and valuable multidisciplinary perspectives. Drawing upon global expertise from legal practitioners, specialist advocacy trainers and multi-disciplinary writers, the book addresses both practical considerations and key challenges faced by ICC victim advocates. These include issues such as gender, child victims, victims of sexual violence, special needs victims, and victims who are themselves implicated in international crimes. Through its practical focus on advocacy techniques, hypothetical case studies, checklists, interviews from the field and lists of further resources, this manual equips readers with the knowledge and skills necessary to engage in ICC victim advocacy. This book will also appeal to those interested in the workings of International Criminal Law, and in victim advocacy and victimology more broadly.
