Globalizing Transitional Justice

Ruti G. Teitel

  • Traces the evolution of the author's reflections on the field of "transitional justice" since the publication of her book Transitional Justice (OUP 2000)
  • Provides an interdisciplinary perspective deriving from many different national and regional contexts, and spanning the range of institutions and policy responses
  • Sheds light on some of the difficult choices faced in the design of transitional justice such as criminal trials vs. amnesties or truth commissions; domestic or international processes
  • Considers transitional justice in relation to political events and legal developments, and in relation to the broader social and cultural tendencies of our times
