Item description for Redress for Victims of Crimes Under International Law by Ilaria Bottigliero...
Paradoxically, victims of ordinary crimes such as fraud, theft or assault, can obtain redress through regular domestic channels, whereas victims of such major atrocities as genocide, war crimes or crimes against humanity, have been left mostly uncompensated. Until recently, a pervasive climate of impunity for international crimes relegated victims to the political and legal periphery. Over the last few years however, the international community has begun to recognize that, just as crimes under international law cannot be considered ordinary crimes, victims of these crimes cannot be considered ordinary victims. In this book, 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.
