    Hello Chris,
    I already commented on your post at the JiC blog, but would like to use the opportunity to introduce myself again.
    I have come about your name and profile two years ago whilst doing research for my own dissertation on the roots of the ICC. Your research is fascinating and the topics inspiring. Regarding your project on victim participation: I worked for an NGO called Interactive Radio for Justice. I am far from doing promotions for them, but I feel the project was so worthwhile and it pained me to see it end.They still have an online archive with radio programmes and voices directly from the DRC and CAR, which might be useful sources for your work – obviously depending on your research questions. Keep up the postings!
