The report is drawn on the analysis of our observation of the ICC’s activities since the opening of the investigation in 2016, as well as on the findings of in-depth sociological research that we conducted in 2018. The research included most of the victims’ settlements throughout Georgia, covering over 2,400 families.

The report is divided into four chapters and provides information on the following issues: the International Criminal Court, an investigation into the situation in Georgia and socio-economic conditions of the affected communities. The fourth chapter includes recommendations for governmental authorities, as well as for different organs and bodies of the ICC. With the following report, we aim at informing the public about the situation in Georgia vis-à-vis the ICC and shed light on the victims’ state of affairs a decade after the conflict. We hope this will help to raise awareness amongst the international community and bring in the much-needed attention to the situation to make the ICC investigation more meaningful for those who are supposed to be in the centre of the process.
