Latest Developments in the Law of Reparations

28th January 2014

This event will be an opportunity for participants to reflect on the latest developments in the field of reparations. A panel of experts on the topic will share their thoughts on where this area of the law is (or should) be going. A keynote address will be made by Professor Theo van Boven. His work was a basis for the development and adoption of the United Nations Basic Principles and Guidelines on the Right to a Remedy and Reparation for Victims of Gross Violations of International Human Rights Law and Serious violations of International Humanitarian Law. Practitioners will comment on his contribution by sharing their own experiences with reparations.

At this event, the latest research conducted by BIICL on the topic of Education and the Law of Reparations in Insecurity and Armed Conflict will be launched and its core content will be presented. This report was commissioned by Protect Education in Insecurity and Conflict (PEIC).

Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a Q&A with the panel.

The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception.
