The KIA Claim

Costs of Financing Kuwait’s Reconstruction

(p.359) Chapter 13 The KIA Claim
War Reparations and the UN Compensation Commission

Caroline Nicholas

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the adjudication of the largest single claim filed before the United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC). This claim, submitted by the Kuwait Investment Authority, sought compensation for the costs of the reconstruction of Kuwait after the end of the occupation, and for other expenses supporting the people of Kuwait incurred during the occupation period and thereafter. It presented issues unique in the history of claims adjudication insofar as compensation was being sought not for the funds that were actually used to support reconstruction (i.e., funds liquidated from Kuwait’s Future Generations Fund, and funds borrowed from other sovereigns), but rather for the financial cost of liquidating or obtaining those funds.
