If victims of state abuses generally experience a gap between entitlement and reality, this can be further observed when it is armed opposition groups (AOGs) committing the human rights and humanitarian law abuses. The disparity between the legal status of victims of state abuses, on the one hand, and victims of AOG's abuses, on the other hand, in the same conflict, is increasingly considered unsatisfactory from a justice-perspective. This chapter addresses the major gap in relation to the victims' right to redress, taking a victim-oriented approach and exploring ways in which AOGs can be held to account and be obliged to provide reparations to the victims of their acts.
