Description: Transitional justice is the study of those mechanisms, judicial and non-judicial, employed by communities, states and the international community to deal with a legacy of systematic human rights abuses and authoritarianism in order to promote social reconstruction. The SSRN Transitional Justice Journal provides a forum where cross-disciplinary discourse about transitional justice can take place between activists, practitioners and academics. Topics covered by the journal include (but are not limited to): reparations, peace agreements, truth commissions, victim and perpetrator studies, international and domestic prosecutions, institutional transformation, and ex-combatant reintegration.
