War Reparations and the UN Compensation Commission : Designing Compensation After Conflict Hardback

Edited by Christopher S. Gibson, Trevor M. Rajah, Timothy John Feighery


The United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC) is a claims reparation program created by the United Nations Security Council in May 1991, after the UN-authorized Allied Coalition Forces' military operations terminated the seven-month invasion and occupation of Kuwait by Iraq and liberated Kuwait.

The UNCC was established with the objectives to receive and decide claims from individuals, corporations, and governments against Iraq as arising directly from Iraq'sinvasion and occupation of Kuwait; and to pay compensation for such claims.

Gulf War Reparations and the UN Compensation Commission: Designing Compensation After Conflict is the first collective work on the UNCC claims program by experts who have contributed to its progress, and who have assisted in paving the way for more informed research on the Commission and its jurisprudence.

Given its unprecedented, serious and sustained effort within the international community, the two-decade long operations of the UNCC deserve considerable attention and in-depthanalysis especially with respect to its impact on the development and progress of international law in the areas of State responsibility and reparations.
