DOMAC Report: International Settlement of Mass Atrocity Claims: Responses by Domestic Courts, 2008-2009

Work Package 7 (WP7) on Reparations of the DOMAC research program studies the interplay between mass claims processes (MCPs) and litigation in domestic courts. Its focus is primarily on how MCPs have been challenged in domestic courts. Reparations have been granted to victims through various forms of MCPs—both at national and international level—in response to some of the same atrocity situations as international courts have addressed. Given the increasing calls for victim reparations in post-conflict planning and peace negotiations, a project such as DOMAC takes account of the actual and potential impact of MCPs.
