33: Carla Ferstman on Victims in the Justice Process
Carla Ferstman returns to Libya Matters to discuss the views, concerns and participation of victims and their families in transitional justice and accountability mechanisms, and to explore what a genuine victim-centred approach would look like in the Libya context.
Carla Ferstman is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Essex Law School and has over 25 years of experience in human rights law and international criminal law. Carla recently authored a series of papers published by LFJL. The Victims Voices’ papers highlight perceptions of victims and their families on the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum, the UN Independent Fact-Finding Mission on Libya and the International Criminal Court.
Our latest report, “Justice is the only way forward”: Perceptions of justice in Libya ten years on, explores the perceptions of justice of Libyans, their views on the transitional justice process and their priorities for accountability ten years on from the 2011 uprising.
