Transitional Justice

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook Chapter

Abstract

Transitional justice can be defined as a set of measures and processes adopted to deal with the consequences of mass human rights violations in the aftermath of regime changes, violet conflicts, wars, and other historical injustices that were derivatives of undemocratic regimes, colonization, occupation, etc. (See Kritz, 1995; Stan & Nedelsky, 2013; Teitel, 2000). Traditional justice can also refer to an interdisciplinary subfield of inquiry that studies those measures, their origin, operation and impact. This overview of transitional justice draws on my previous work (David, 2017)
