Abstract

Beginning with the application forms, ending with the contact between the legal representatives and their clients, in this dissertation, the different forms of representation are reconstructed. Based on the theoretical assumption that a legitimacy gap (the justice gap) is inherent in the legal strive for closure underlying the legitimizing narrative of bringing truth and justice to victims, the silencing effects within the organization of victim participation are revealed. At the same time, the resisting potential of the always already immanent (im)possibilities can be conceived of as constructive irritations, deferring closure. Thereby, the very concepts of presence and voice, propagated when claiming that „African victims“ voices are represented at The Hague are scrutinized.

In dieser Dissertation werden die Repräsentationsverhältnisse von Opfern, die an den Prozessen am Internationalen Strafgerichtshof teilnehmen und denen "Wahrheit und Gerechtigkeit" durch das Gericht gebracht werden soll vom Antragsverfahren bis zum persönlichen Kontakt zwischen Repräsentant_innen und Klient_innen nachgezeichnet. Auf der theoretischen Annahme basierend, dass der Narrativ traumatisierten Opfern von massiven Menschenrechtsverletzungen Wahrheit und Gerechtigkeit zu bringen und damit zu einem gesellschaftlichen und individuellen Heilungsprozess beizutragen, von einer (Un)möglichkeit heimgesucht wird, die allen rechtlichen Schließungsbegehren zugrunde liegt, werden die Ausschlüsse innerhalb des rechtlichen Prozesses aufgezeigt - das "zum Schwegen bringen" bestimmter Geschichten, die für den rechtlichen Prozess potentiell irritierend sind. Damit sollen die Konzepte von Präsenz und Stimme, die vom Internationalen STrafgerichtshof gerade in Bezug auf Afrikanische Opfer zur Legitimation der Interventionen konstruiert werden, in Frage gestellt.German
