Transitional Justice: From Retribution to Reconciliation
Explores the politics of transitional justice in post-war, post-conflict and postcolonial states. Students examine political responses to atrocity in the context of conflicting demands that include the rule of law, peace, retribution and human rights. Specific topics include trials, truth commissions and hybrid courts, the use of amnesty and the practice of apology, democratisation, development and reconciliation.
