syn: redress, reparation, restitution suggest making amends or giving compensation for a wrong. redress may refer either to the act of setting right an unjust situation or to satisfaction sought or gained for a wrong suffered: the redress of grievances. reparation refers to compensation or satisfaction for a wrong or loss inflicted. The word may have the moral idea of amends, but more frequently it refers to financial compensation: to make reparation for one's neglect; the reparations demanded of the aggressor nations. restitution means literally the giving back of what has been taken from the lawful owner, but may refer to restoring the equivalent of what has been taken: The servant convicted of robbery made restitution to his employer.
