Abstract

The scarcity of scholarly research on reparations for refugees may easily lead to an inaccurate conclusion that they are either uncommon or unimportant in the aftermath of refugee crises. This essay seeks to dispel this myth by examining reparations in a refugee context, their historical development, and the recent trend toward using reparations in peace processes.
