This chapter introduces the background and purposes of this study on compensation, restitution, and reparation. It supplies an outline of how the study moves from ancient Roman law to early European continental law to the modern customary law on State responsibility and reparation. A brief overview of each of the chapters and the attached annexes is also given. Additionally, the chapter sets out some of the terminology as it is used in this book for purposes of clarity. As there are a number of common terms in the international law of State responsibility that do not have settled meanings, how certain terms are defined for purposes of this study is provided.
