Abstract (300 words maximum)

I will address how the implementation of the use of reparation mechanisms affects the satisfaction of sexual-violence victims of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The existing literature is lacking regarding measuring the level of satisfaction among sexual violence victims that have received reparations in the DRC. I will compile data of victims of sexual violence in the DRC, and experts in sex trafficking and International Criminal Court Registered Experts. This data will be recorded from all possible press releases available and information from the International Criminal Court’s Strategic Plan, and also some structured interviews with victims. Through my research, the Court and its stakeholders can assess the progress made by the institution in terms of the effectiveness and quality of its work regarding reparations.
