Abstract

Children born of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) in conflict have slowly gained international attention, even featuring in international criminal justice processes, such as those at the International Criminal Court (ICC). These children suffer unique harms due to the circumstances surrounding their birth, with a burgeoning literature documenting the long-term and multigenerational impact on their development. This article contributes to this existing literature by applying Bronfenbrenner’s ecological model of human development to ICC responses to these children, yielding a more nuanced understanding of the ICC as part of the ecological environment in which child development occurs.
