When the Darfur Consortium mission visited Darfurian refugees in eastern Chad in February 2005, one of the key concerns that they voiced was the need for accountability. Indeed, many refugees expressed accountability for crimes committed in Darfur as a prerequisite for return. As a result, the Darfur Consortium began a campaign to support the referral of the situation in Darfur to the International Criminal Court.

Since the referral, the Consortium has continued to monitor the situation with regard to the ICC cases and to provide information and analysis about their impact.
