Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on mass violations in cases of serious violations of human rights, including violations that may amount to international crimes. It examines the practice of human rights treaty bodies and regional human rights courts, in adjudicating claims concerning mass violations in relation to large-scale violations, such as massacres, systemic or recurring patterns of violations and violations of community-based rights. The chapter also focuses on cases that actually or potentially involve a considerable or large number of claimants. These include: the accessibility of human rights treaty bodies to the victims of mass violations; the adequacy of the reparation awards afforded by such bodies; and the challenges relating to the enforcement of reparations awards. In so doing, the chapter seeks to identify the best practice of human rights bodies in responding to mass violations.

Keywords: human rights treaty bodies; international human rights courts; mass violations; regional human rights courts
