Recent years have seen the creation of many international claims tribunals, some more ad hoc than others, and some more well-know than others. These include the Iran-US Claims Tribunal, the UN Compensation Commission, the Claims Resolution Tribunal for Dormant Accounts in Switzerland, the Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo Real Property Commissions, and the Eritrea-Ethiopia Claims Commission. The Rome State of the International Crimnal Court also envisions a claims process for victims. Join us as Lucy Reed describes the origin, features and performance of such tribunals.
