Chapter Summary

While this discussion is in no way intended to minimize the suffering of civilian men and children during times of armed conflict (or their neglect during the reparations process), women have been the conscious targets of particularly insidious forms of violence which, while precipitated by political motivations, have profoundly personal impacts. This paper addresses the failures of the international community and its legal framework to remedy the effects of conflict upon women. It casts a gender lens upon the movement for reparations to victims of conflict. By looking at existing standards of remedies for gross human rights violations, the paper exposes the gendered shortcomings of the current framework and illustrates how female victims are marginalized in the remedial phase of international justice. It then discusses the recent work of women's rights advocates and activists in drafting the 2007 Nairobi Declaration on Women's and Girls' Right to a Remedy and Reparation.

Keywords: 2007 Nairobi Declaration; gendered paradigm; post-conflict reparations; restitution; victims of conflict; Women's and Girls' Right
