Chapter 5 The Palestinian “Late Claims” Program
War Reparations and the UN Compensation Commission

Jason Scott Palmer

Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with the unique plight of Palestinian claimants. It identifies that the Palestinians did not have a government that could file claims on their behalf, but that the Governing Council directed the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) to assist in filing claims on their behalf. These efforts were not effective. The chapter discusses the role of the Permanent Observer Mission of Palestine to the United Nations Office at Geneva who requested in 2001 that the Governing Council authorize it to file late claims on behalf of Palestinians who did not have an opportunity to file their claims during the regular filing period. The chapter reviews the Governing Council’s decision approving the late filing. It also discusses the technical implementation of the Governing Council decision. The chapter discusses the substantive processing of those claims, including a critique of the program.

Keywords:   Palestinian, late filing, overview, eligibility, admissibility, substantive processing, Beduon late claims
