Abstract

The paper proposes a new international mechanism to provide compensation and restitution of property to victims of armed conflict. The mechanism would strike an intermediate course between a judicial mechanism administering justice in individual cases and an administrative body providing compensation on a non-individualised basis. It would build on the experience gained with ad hoc international claims bodies regarding Iran, Iraq and Eritrea/Ethiopia but avoid the disadvantages associated with the ad hoc nature of these bodies.
