about

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 theCommission was established, the extent of its jurisdiction, and the applicable law on which it relied.
