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.

ICC Outreach works in sixteen countries, on four continents. No country is the same.
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.
Outreach uses different ways of communication to provide information on the work of the Court to the communities affected by crimes, but also particular groups such as civil society organisations, media, professional associations, students, academia, and community leaders, amongst others.
