The debate around reparations may develop a taxonomical ontology for amending historical injustices.  Gunnemyr (2020) argued that participation is not sufficient for political responsibility of structural injustices.  Dutton and Aoláin (2019) explained how international criminal justice arrived from the needs of mass atrocity crimes.  Carcieri (2010) listed types of reparations available such as official apologies, gestures, official holidays, commissions, mandatory disclosure and data collection laws, and financial provisions.  Levmore (2004) proposed a plan where people could make voluntary contributions to pay for reparations.  Brophy (2006) described the challenge in moral claims of historical injustice where lawsuits are not possible.  Brophy (2006) discussed the challenge of culpability in historical injustice and present that governments maintain culpability and taxpayers are representatives of governments.  Obuah (2016) presented tort and ethical models of epistemic communities of the reparations debate.
