Transitional justice is the way societies that have experienced civil conflict or authoritarian rule and widespread violations of human rights deal with the experience. With its roots in law, transitional justice as an area of study crosses various fields in the social sciences. This book is written with this multi and inter-disciplinary dynamic of the field in mind.
The book presents the broad scope of transitional justice studies through a focus on the theory, mechanisms and debates in the area. This approach provides valuable insight for those who seek both an introduction alongside relatively advanced engagement with the subject.
Transitional Justice offers a useful learning and teaching text for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students who take courses in the area, as well as a systematic reference text for researchers.
