Chapter Summary

The vulnerability of the victim in the cases concerning children reviewed - coupled with the gross nature of such violations - has led to the elaboration of the concept of "aggravated responsibility" under the State responsibility doctrine for violations against children. This chapter reflects on four aspects of reparation concerning cases of children which were dealt with by the Inter-American Court. The first relates to the particularly serious nature of the responsibility incurred by the State in violations that affect children. The second relates to problems and evolving principles concerning compensation for loss of life in cases of children. The third relates to comments concerning reparation for violations of the children's rights in cases of multiple victims. Finally, it comments on the importance of the measures of public impact that have come about as guarantees of non-repetition and measures of satisfaction in cases concerning children.

Keywords: compensation; Inter-American Court; loss of life; reparation; victims; violations of children's rights
