Processes covered in this book include the Iran-US Claims Tribunal, the UN Compensation Commission (relating to Iraqnulls invasion of Kuwait) and Mass Claims Processes relating to the Holocaust, the conflicts in Bosnia and Kosovo, and the war between Eritrea and Ethiopia
Mass Claims Processes have become increasingly important phenomena in international dispute resolution. This is the first book to provide comprehensive information for a systematic comparison and analysis of the legal issues and practical matters involved in their establishment and operation. This book considers eleven of the highest profile modern Mass Claims tribunals and commissions created to redress large-scale losses. They include the Iran-US Claims Tribunal, the UN Compensation Commission (relating to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait), several bodies to resolve claims relating to bank accounts, insurance or slave labor resulting from the Holocaust, as well as to the conflicts in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Kosovo, and to the war between Eritrea and Ethiopia. The Processes described in this book received claims involving an estimated aggregate of more than 4 million persons and entities seeking over US $4 billion.
The book identifies and focuses on forty-seven basic topics that experience shows typically arise with respect to international Mass Claims Processes, offering descriptions and commentary on the ways in which the various Processes have approached each topic.
Much of the information gathered in this book is not publicly available elsewhere and is based on the knowledge and experience of experts who have either served on the Processes or otherwise been directly engaged in their activities.
This book should be useful to all scholars and practitioners interested in international dispute settlement as well as to those involved with new or existing Mass Claims Processes. Moreover, it may lead to recognition that certain aspects of Mass Claims Processes might have lessons for other procedures for resolution of complex commercial or diplomatic disputes.
