Ilaria Bottigliero; Redress for Victims of Crimes Under International Law

Martinus Nijhoff, Leiden/Boston 2004

Dr. Bottigliero explores the origins, evolution and practice relating to victims’ redress in domestic law, regional and universal human rights regimes, humanitarian law, the law of State responsibility, United Nations practice, and international criminal law including the International Criminal Court. She argues that the international community must now move beyond incomplete and fragmented approaches towards a much more comprehensive redress regime for victims of crimes under international law, and she recommends means by which to enhance the coherence, effectiveness and fairness of victims’ redress.
