Scholars and practitioners working in 'transitional justice' are concerned with remedies of accountability and redress in the aftermath of conflict and state repression. Transitional justice, it is argued, provides recognition of the rights of victims, promotes civic trust, and strengthens the democratic rule of law. As serious scholarship flourishes around this critical concept as never before, this new collection from Routledge meets the need for an authoritative reference work to map a vibrant site of research and reflection. In four volumes, Transitional Justice is an accessible database which brings together foundational and the best and most influential cutting-edge materials, including key works produced before the term 'transitional justice' gained wide currency but which anticipate approaches now included under that rubric.
The collection covers themes such as: truth and history; acknowledgement, reconciliation, and forgiveness; retribution, restorative justice and reparations; and democracy, state-building, identity, and civil society. Fully indexed and with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editors, Transitional Justice is an essential work of reference.
