Section 4: Setting Priorities

Section 4: Setting Priorities

Published:December 24, 2019

Grant victims different benefits tailored to the type and duration of violation, degree and consequences of harm suffered and other relevant factors.

We consider the following groups most vulnerably and thus in need of being prioritized in the course of devising and implementing reparation measures.

Those inherently more vulnerable than others

  • Children including but not limiting to orphans, children forcibly transferred to families other than their own, children born of rape, child soldiers, children victims of conflict-related sexual violence and indoctrinated children.
  • Widows whose husbands have been killed or disappeared during the ISIS conflict in Iraq.
  • Families where sole breadwinners have been killed or abducted.

Those against whom especially severe crimes and/or multiple crimes with grave consequences were committed

  • Long-lasting and/or especially severe conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV)
  • Genocide
  • Those that suffered multiple violations (i.e. direct victims of torture/CRSV whose family members were killed or disappeared)
  • Long-lasting or especially severe forms of torture
  • Relatives of missing persons
  •  Amputees, those maimed and those that suffered irreparable and serious psychological damage
