"...The role of apology as a form of reparation for violations of human rights and international humanitarian law, however, is relatively poorly established and receives little attention from international courts and tribunals, practising international lawyers or international law academics. This chapter considers whether more can and should be done to promote apology as a form of reparation for human rights violations and crimes under international law. It argues that it is time for international lawyers to take apology seriously." (abstract)
