Remedies in International Human Rights Law


Oxford University Press

All international tribunals have expressed concern over ensuring that their views, decisions, and judgments are made effective and that remedies are afforded to the victims of human rights violations. Some of the most innovative developments in the law of remedies can be seen in this regard, such as the establishment of trust funds by the Inter-American Court. International tribunals have jurisdiction to protect the awards made to victims. As the Inter-American Commission's evaluation demonstrates, compliance with what states choose to perceive as mere recommendations has not been good. A similar study of compliance with views of the United Nations Human Rights Committee or Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination would probably yield similar results. States do seem to take more seriously judicial bodies and the treaty commitments they have undertaken to abide by judgments in cases to which they are party.
