ICC Victim Applications

The IJP’s founders, Raymond M. Brown, Esq. and Wanda M. Akin, Esq., currently represent the first Darfurian victims recognized by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to participate in the proceedings related to the Darfur Situation. They also represent several Darfurian victims participating in the ICC case against Sudanese President al-Bashir. The IJP engages in the following functions:
- Providing legal, logistical, and other support to individuals seeking to submit applications for participation in proceedings at the ICC;
- Conducting outreach and educating survivors, human rights advocates, activists, NGOs, and other individuals and organizations about the ICC, international criminal law, human rights, and the situation in Darfur; and
- Connecting survivors and their children with specialized medical care for the emotional, physical, and sexual trauma they have suffered (see HARP - http://www.internationaljusticeproject.com/programs/harp/).

Population(s) Served

The IJP operates the Emergency Response Network, which addresses the direct and immediate health and other needs of women and children who experienced genocidal and other violence and trauma in Darfur, Sudan, and who are now living in the United States. Since its inception, the IJP has worked to obtain justice for the victims of the Darfur crisis at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Netherlands. Through this work, the IJP encountered many members of the Darfurian Diaspora in the United States, especially women and children, who were in urgent need of medical care and who were at risk of becoming disenfranchised without relevant assistance.

Population(s) Served

The Health & Reparations Project (HARP) is a health and welfare audit of the Darfurian Diaspora living in the U.S. which will assess the conditions, needs, and desires of this population. The goal is to give voice to Darfurians, including the Diaspora, in the transitional justice process and inform the discussions on reparations - both in the context of the ICC and as part of potential diplomatic solutions for the Darfur conflict. We have partnered with Boston College’s Institute for the Liberal Arts (http://www.bc.edu/centers/ila/), several NGOs, and other academic institutions to develop and conduct the assessment and analysis across the country. Under the leadership of our Marilyn S. Broad Fellow, we will determine how these health and other needs relate to reparations and impact the proceedings at the ICC.
The key objectives of HARP are:
(1) To organize a health & welfare audit among selected North American Darfurian Diaspora communities to better understand their needs and the causes of community-wide malaise, depression, and detachment;
(2) To galvanize public and private resources to provide immediate care to and address the needs of these individuals in the U.S. and eventually elsewhere in the Diaspora; and
(3) To serve as a catalyst for the development of a strategy to address reparations at the ICC proceedings, with the expectation that this process and success can help develop a multifaceted approach to restorative justice, including examinations of restitution, compensation, and rehabilitation in legal and diplomatic contexts.
(4) To establish interdisciplinary partnerships. Research on collective violence has typically been studied from two perspectives in the social sciences—the cultural (i.e., how orchestrated violence is culturally traumatic to a society) and the individual (i.e., how individuals cope with such violence). Utilizing interdisciplinary and social justice approaches, this project aims to bridge this divide, thereby translating, from the language of psychology and sociology to the language of law and politics, the harm caused to a traumatized community and that community’s vision for how the harm should be addressed.

Population(s) Served

The IJP applies our extensive knowledge of and experience with criminal and humanitarian law for the benefit of human trafficking victims.
