Chapter 3 is a practical guide to advocacy at the International Criminal Court. It is divided into two parts: (1) advocacy within the litigation context, primarily on behalf of victims; and (2) work outside the litigation framework. The first part primarily focuses on victim advocacy, including: attaining counsel status; group versus individual representation; victim participation before and during trial; appeals; sentencing, and reparations. This first, litigation-oriented part also describes promoting prosecutions or investigations through the so-called ‘Article 15’ process and filing amicus curiae briefs in active cases. The second part of the chapter looks outside the courtroom. It offers instruction on conducting fieldwork, including locating victims/witnesses and connecting them to the ICC and counsel, and helping enable reparations. The chapter concludes with a primer on participating in the annual meeting of the ICC’s governing body, the Assembly of States Parties.
