Chapter Summary

This chapter examines reparation through the lens of gender, emphasizing the critical importance of gender-sensitive reparation programmes for societies in transition. It describes reparation as an obligation under international law. The chapter explores different conceptual frameworks for understanding reparation and addresses the specific experiences of women and girls during and after conflict. It explains the ways in which the Nairobi Declaration on Women's and Girls' Right to a Remedy and Reparation addresses the specific needs of women and girls by re-conceptualising reparation in a gender-just way. In 2006 and 2007, the Coalition for Women's Human Rights in Conflict Situations decided to sponsor a series of discussions on the subject of reparation, with the aim of guiding State and non-State actors toward the effective implementation of gender-just reparation programmes. The Coalition's ultimate goal was to inform the international justice process and the International Criminal Court (ICC) and its Trust Fund.
