ICCT to Host – Victims of terrorism and their right to access justice: Challenges and solutions

26 September @ 3:00 pm 4:30 pm

International Centre for Counter-Terrorism is hosting a panel discussion on victims of terrorism and their right to access justice.

Victims’ right to access to justice is a fundamental human right and a principle of the rule of law. To exercise this right, States have the obligation to provide adequate avenues for victims to access the judicial system and have their cases heard before a competent jurisdiction. How can these obstacles be resolved? How can the experiences, perspectives and priorities of victims be (best) considered during the investigation and trial process? And what are the victims’ experiences with the judicial system? These are some of the questions to answer in order to facilitate victims’ fight to access justice. The following panellists will discuss these and other questions: Niki Siampakou, Jeanne Sulzer, Hope Rikkelman, Catherine Marchi-Uhel
