This Special Issue is the second in a series reporting on the first trial Judgement by Trial Chamber I in the case against Thomas Lubanga Dyilo, issued on 14 March 2012.

Welcome to a Special issue of Legal Eye on the ICC, a regular eLetter from the Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice. In the Legal Eye, you will find summaries and gender analysis of judicial decisions and other legal developments at the International Criminal Court (ICC), and discussion of legal issues arising from victims’ participation before the Court, particularly as these issues relate to the prosecution of gender-based crimes in each of the Situations under investigation by the ICC. The Court currently has seven Situations under investigation: Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Darfur, the Central African Republic (CAR), Kenya, Libya and Côte d’Ivoire.
In addition to the Legal Eye on the ICC we also produce Women’s Voices, a regular eLetter providing updates and analysis on political developments, the pursuit of justice and accountability, the participation of women in peace talks and reconciliation efforts from the perspective of women's rights activists within armed conflict situations, specifically those countries under investigation by the ICC.
