Abstract:     
Several international criminal tribunals provide victims with the right to participate directly in a proceeding not just as a witness or an observer but as a "civil party." Courts allowing parties to appear as civil parties include the International Criminal Court (ICC), the Extraordinary Chambers for the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC), and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL). This article discusses in particular the treatment of civil parties in the specific context of the first judgment issued by the Extraordinary Chambers for the Courts of Cambodia.
