Summary

Litigating War offers an in-depth examination of the Claims Commission of the Eritrea-Ethiopia War, which was tasked with deciding, through binding arbitration, claims for losses, damages, and injuries resulting from the war. After providing an overview of the war, the authors describe how the Commission was established, the extent of its jurisdiction, and the applicable law on which it relied. They explain the types of evidentiary issues that the Commission faced, and the types of relief that it ultimately offered war victims. The book includes a description of each side's treatment of both enemy aliens and prisoners of war, and concludes with a discussion of the lessons that can be learned from the Claims Commission's process and performance.
