This contribution assesses compensation practices at the UN through the lens of accountability. It argues that somewhat paradoxically, some UN member states have a better track record than the UN itself where it comes to compensating third parties for harms that occur in conflict areas. The thesis of this contribution is that the UN can improve the immunity – accountability axis by drawing on the best practices of member states in the areas of compensation and victim centred remedies
