Abstract:

This paper examines the emergence and evolution of international norms on reparations for repatriating refugees. While there is widespread and growing support amongst national and international actors for displaced personsÂ’ right to redress, particularly in the form of real property restitution, international law does not yet provide a definitive backstop for this view. Furthermore, although reparations efforts in regions such as the Balkans have garnered extensive attention and praise from refugees, researchers and policy-makers alike, international norms on reparations for returnees are still not evenly implemented in major repatriation operations. Although the tools of redress have been honed remarkably since the end of the Second World War, this paper argues that reparation is still a clumsy tool in the hands of states and international actors, and must be further sharpened in order to ensure that return processes are fair and sustainable. The paper concludes by reflecting on the risks associated with overstating the current strength of international norms on redress for refugees.
