A new publication from Impunity Watch and INOVAS argues that victim participation must be at the centre of any reparations effort to ensure post-conflict recovery.
Reparations are crucial for ensuring justice for victims and survivors of grave human rights violations – and yet they often fall off the agenda or do not fully meet the needs of victims.

The report is a joint publication with INOVAS, a global network of victims and survivors.
