The authors examine in detail the “direct loss” requirement of Security Council resolution 687, noting that in declaring that Iraq would be responsible for all direct losses resulting from its invasion of Kuwait, the Security Council could not have foreseen all the kinds of claims that would be submitted to the United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC) as a consequence of its potentially expansive jurisdictional delineation. The chapter highlights the main causation issues asserted before and resolved by the E2 Commissioner panels of the UNCC, which were charged with the most geographically- and subject-matter-diverse group of corporate claims submitted to the UNCC.

Keywords:   direct loss, causation, proximate cause, lost profits, remoteness, embargo-related losses, mitigation, multiple recovery
