Bearing Witness  at the International Criminal Court: An Interview Survey of 109 Witnesses 

This report presents findings from the first interview survey of witnesses who have appeared before the International Criminal Court (ICC or the Court). The survey examined the opinions and at- titudes of 109 individuals—ranging from victims to expert witnesses—who testified in the Court's first two trials—Prosecutor v. Thomas Lubango Dyilo and Prosecutor v. Germain Katanga. Both trials took place in the Court's chambers in The Hague and concerned serious international crimes that occurred in the Democratic Republic of Congo between July 2002 and December 2003. A total of 123 witnesses testified in both trials.


The interview survey set out to address an overarching question: Is the International Criminal Court meeting the diverse needs of witnesses who participate in ICC trials? The specific objectives of the survey were to:


1. Capture witnesses' views about their experiences testifying in the Lubanga and Katanga trials;
2. Understand the needs and concerns of witnesses from the pre-trial to post-trial phases; and
3. Identify ways in which the ICC's Victims and Witnesses Unit (VWU), other ICC organs, and the Assembly of States Parties can improve witness interaction with the Court.
