War Reparations and the UN Compensation Commission

Timothy J. Feighery

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents and discusses that consistent body of law that developed within the United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC) on the more global issues of jurisdiction, burden of proof, sufficiency of evidence, and standard of evidence, particularly as this jurisprudence is perhaps likely to have the greatest impact on the continuing development of international claims law. It discusses the scope of the Commission’s jurisdiction, including the “directness” and “arising prior to” requirements of Security Council resolution 687 (1990), as well as the law applied by the Commission to the claims before it. It also discusses the evidentiary standards applied, including burden of proof, standard of proof, and sufficiency of evidence, and how the different panels of Commissioners, dealing with widely different claims categories in terms of type as well as volume of claims, addressed these issues in a consistent fashion.

Keywords:   jurisdiction, arising prior to, directness, burden of proof, sufficiency of evidence, standard of proof
