Victim’s Justice in the Aftermath of Genocide: Lessons from Efforts in the Balkans

With the rise of transitional justice globally, the role of reparations in war has changed.  "Victor's justice" in the form of punishment through reparations as fines between states has expanded to include redress for individual human rights violated. "Victim's justice" includes reparations for such rights violations and is now a global phenomenon. This talk focuses on the global significance of reparations efforts in Balkan states in the aftermath of the 1990's genocide in Yugoslavia. Who can pursue reparations, in what venues, for what types of reparations, at what cost?  What are global policy implications for redress in the aftermath of mass human rights violations?
