ICC reparations order cites Atim testimony and report

On February 28, 2024, the International Criminal Court ordered reparations of more than $56 million to victims of Ugandan rebel commander Dominic Ongwen.

Feinstein Visiting Fellow Teddy Atim was one of five experts who testified live during the trial proceedings. Throughout its reparations order, the ICC cited Dr. Atim’s report based on interviews with 396 victims participating in the case:

In her report, Dr Atim described that the majority of the victims of the attacks who suffered physical harm reported a disability, which, in turn, affected their livelihoods, access to human and material resources, ability to work, and education.
According to Dr Atim, victims with lower psychosocial well-being were also found to have lower household wealth, lower earnings, and lower income potential.

The report, co-authored by Feinstein Research Assistant Professor Anastasia Marshak, Feinstein Research Director Dyan Mazurana, and Jordan Farrar, is available for download.
