Panel Discussion: Reparations of Past Mass Crimes

On March 3, 2016, the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights, in associaiton with the Université Paris 2 Panthéon Assas, will host a panel discussion on "Reparations of Past Mass Crimes." The program is here. Here's the idea:
What are the current challenges regarding reparations of past mass crimes? What role for the International Criminal Court, the European Court of Human Rights or for national jurisdictions? What about the victims? These issues will be discussed and debated by the panelists, who will also address lessons learned from past experiences, including South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the Holocaust Reparations or the Eritrea-Ethiopia Claims Commission.
