9780521860109: Transitional Justice in the Twenty-First Century: Beyond Truth versus Justice

Dealing with the aftermath of civil conflict or the fall of a repressive government continues to trouble countries throughout the world. Whereas much of the 1990s was occupied with debates concerning the relative merits of criminal prosecutions and truth commissions, by the end of the decade a consensus emerged that this either/or approach was inappropriate and unnecessary. A second generation of transitional justice experiences have stressed both truth and justice and recognize that a single method may inadequately serve societies rebuilding after conflict or dictatorship. Based on studies in ten countries, this book analyzes how some combine multiple institutions, others experiment with community-level initiatives that draw on traditional law and culture, whilst others combine internal actions with transnational or international ones. The authors argue that transitional justice efforts must also consider the challenges to legitimacy and local ownership emerging after external military intervention or occupation.

Book Description:

A new generation of countries are now coping with the end of civil conflict or fall of a repressive government. Based on ten case studies, this book traces the theory of transitional justice and analyzes the techniques employed, including combining multiple institutions and using local-level, transnational and national efforts simultaneously.
