Book Description

15 July 2008 Human Rights Law in Perspective (Book 14)
Although relatively new as a distinct field of study, transitional justice has become rapidly established as a vital field of enquiry. From vaguely exotic origins on the outer edges of political science, the study of 'justice' in times of transition has emerged as a central concern of scholarship and practical policy-making. A process of institutionalisation has confirmed this importance. The ICTY, the ICTR, the ICC, hybrid tribunals in Sierra Leone and East Timor and 'local' processes such as the Iraqi Higher Tribunal (IHT) have energised international law and international criminal justice scholarship. The South African TRC was for a time lauded as the model for dealing with the past and remains one of the most researched institutions in the world. It is one of approximately two dozen such institutions established in different transitional contexts over the past twenty years to assist conflicted societies to come to terms with a violent past. At the national level, international donors contribute huge sums of money to 'Rule of Law' programmes designed to transform national justice systems. This collection seeks to offer something quite different to the mainstream of scholarship in this area, emphasising the need for bespoke solutions to different transitions rather than 'off the shelf' models. The collection is designed to offer a space for diversity, prompted by a series of perspectives "from below" of societies beset by past violent conflict which have sought to effect their transition to justice. In doing so the contributors have also sought to enrich discussion about the role of human rights in transition, the continuing usefulness of perspectives from above, and the still contested meanings of "transition".

Review

A collection of valuable observations Padraig McAuliffe Human Rights Law Review December 23rd, 2009 The collection is both timely and refreshing...it leaves aside well-worn debates about truth, impunity, the rule of law, and restorative justice to tackle transitional justice from novel or under-explored perspectives within criminology, political economy, international development, and sociolegal studies. Rosemary Nagy Law and Society Review 2009 This volume makes a unique contribution to the literature on transitional justice. The authors help us to develop a complex understanding of transitional justice that includes but does not exclusively rely on the interests of grassroots movements. This book will work well for experts or an advanced seminar on transitional justice. Lena Zhong International Criminal Justice Review 20 (2)
