Traditionally, International Law has not paid sufficient attention to victims. An explanation for this can be found in the particular nature of international law: States make, interpret and apply international law. Therefore, as a result of this and owing to the predominantly interstate structure of the international community, international norms have been created to respond to states’ interests and goals. In this context, states have paid attention to persons or individuals only in some particular fields of international law.
