Executive Summary

Refugees’ claims for restitution, compensation and other forms of reparations have, in recent years, received increasing attention from researchers, policymakers and practitioners working in conflict and post-conflict environments. In countries from Bosnia and Tajikistan to Guatemala and Iraq, significant reparations programmes have been rolled out in an attempt to address displaced persons’ justice claims, particularly as they relate to the loss of homes and lands. However, the gender dimensions and implications of reparations programmes for displaced persons have rarely been examined in detail. As efforts to redress refugees develop, it will be essential to give this issue greater consideration.
