Chapter Summary

This chapter highlights the work of the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in the field of mass claims, as secretariat to international mass claims processes (MCPs), documentation and research center, and as convener of a special study on this under-explored subject. In order to facilitate comparisons between MCPs and the International Criminal Court (ICC) Trust Fund, the chapter outlines the Trust Fund's regulatory framework. The chapter surveys some of the findings of the PCA special study concerning MCP practices and procedures and points out parallels in the Trust Fund Regulations. It concludes that, although the ICC stepped onto a field with few rules governing reparations to victims, the practice of MCPs has provided it with some concrete examples of practical approaches. Mass claims mechanisms, beyond merely providing financial remedies, have provided ?at least some recognition of wrongs".

Keywords: International Criminal Court (ICC) Trust Fund; mass claims processes (MCPs); Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA)
