Abstract

In an inter-state reparations claim, the injured State’s approach to reparations may differ from the vision of injured individuals and communities. Arguably the injured state is duty-bound to optimise its nationals’ rights when they are the intended beneficiaries. But even with the best intentions, it can be hard to do so in practice when there are many victims and multiple points of view of what might be optimal. A state requires latitude to conduct its international affairs. Are victims’ rights to reparation capable of impinging on that latitude, at all?

Keywords: reparations, ICJ, state claims
