This chapter presents the origin and structure of the UN Compensation Commission (UNCC). The UNCC initiated its work by providing humanitarian compensation for 2.7 million people displaced, injured, and harmed by Iraq’s 1990 invasion and occupation of Kuwait. From 1991 to 2005, the UNCC processed claims from over 90 countries and developed procedures considered for dispute, disaster, and conflict compensation. The complex, high-value environmental claims resolved in the final phase of the UNCC mandate from 2000 to 2005 required UNCC to adapt and innovate its general framework.
