My research focuses on the development of collective reparations within international human rights law, international criminal law, and transitional justice. In order to get a better understanding of collective reparations and its development in international law, I conduct a qualitative content analysis of the case law of the particular courts. The cases dealing with gross human rights violations are coded in MAXQDA2018, a software program that is developed for qualitative content analysis. Thereafter, the coded decisions are searched for patterns in the decisions, such as statements and rulings that are repeated or that changed over time. In addition, relations between several key codes, such as the beneficiaries, the specific violations, and reasons given by the court for the provision of specific reparative measures are analyzed.
