A journal article written by Haydee Dijkstal on the use and influence of human rights before the International Criminal Court has been published in Volume 31, No 3 of the Indiana International & Comparative Law Review.  The article explores how the human rights-based approach adopted within the Court’s proceedings for the crime of the destruction of cultural heritage fits within the Court’s historical approach to human rights considerations, and whether the influence of human rights in these proceeding at such stages as the gravity assessment to sentencing and reparations proceedings is part of a trend towards a more significant relationship with human rights considerations.
