This talk is part of the International Law Association (British Branch) Lecture Series.

About this talk:
There has been great attention in international human rights law and jurisprudence on remedies to victims of human rights violations. International human rights courts have greatly contributed to the development of the right to reparation, applying and adjusting the general principle of reparation in the law of State responsibility -as well as the various forms of reparation-, within the specific context of human rights treaties violations. This presentation will discuss the remedial practice of the UN Human Rights Committee, in the framework of its quasi-adjudicatory function of the examination of individual communications.
