Building bonds every day

For the communities affected by crimes under investigation and on trial

ICC Outreach promotes access to justice for survivors of mass crimes and other members of the affected communities. Every day, Outreach keeps alive the dialogue with people whose lives were touched by the conflicts finding new ways to inform communities and professionals alike.

No matter how far victims might be from the Court, the ICC Outreach acts as the extension of the courtroom’s public gallery. Why do we do it? People most affected by the crimes have the right to understand, to participate in, and to have a sense of ownership of the justice process.

The Court engages with these communities directly, in local languages. We talk, exchange views, respond to questions, address concerns and provide people with information to promote understanding throughout the stages of the judicial proceedings.
