This master’s thesis aims to review the United Nations Compensation Commission’s activity in the compensation of environmental damages, specifically in the circumstances of the Gulf War. This paper was written by dissecting the construction, jurisdiction, applicable law and the application of environmental damages to determine whether the UNCC is a viable jus post bellum utensil. Through this course of analysis, the examination of the UNCC’s procedure will reveal some irregular procedural practices influenced by the political positions of UN member States. This thesis makes prominent the technical methods used to add a monetary value on environmental damages and its challenges. This study will further set light on how the unique experience of the UNCC can be used as a steppingstone for future reparations. Finally, this paper underlines the extent of the viability of the UNCC as a post conflict reparation institution.
