Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the basic principles and guidelines on the right to a remedy and reparation for victims of gross violations of international human rights law and serious violations of international humanitarian law, which are adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 16 December 2005. The General Assembly adopts the basic principles and guidelines by affirming that the basic principles and guidelines are directed at gross violations of international human rights law and serious violations of international humanitarian law which, by their very grave nature, constitute an affront to human dignity. It also recognizes that, in honouring the victims' right to benefit from remedies and reparation, the international community keeps faith with the plight of victims, survivors and future human generations and reaffirms the international legal principles of accountability, justice and the rule of law.
