Post-colonial nation-state to seek reparations from Westminster
Is it legally possible for a post-colonial nation-state to seek reparations from Westminster/Her Majesty The Queen? Has there been any precedent?
Yes, a legally tenable case for reparations can be made (see, Nora Wittmann, Reparations — Legally Justified and Sine qua non for Global Justice, Peace and Security, available at, www.theglobaljusticenetwork.org/index.php/gjn/article/download/118/98). While a definite answer of whether there has been any precedent, will require a thorough study of the precedents in this regard, a preliminary research suggests that there haven't been any recent precedent.
