Transitional Justice Research

Parry and Grant's Encyclopaedic Dictionary of International Law defines transitional justice as "a subset within international criminal law, connoting the options and processes available to a State during or, more usually, following armed conflict, repression, or mass violence (sometimes referred to as a transitional State) to deal with the (usually egregious) criminal acts committed during the conflict, repression, or violence." These options include Truth and Reconciliation Commissions, special domestic courts, hybrid courts, and ad hoc international tribunals. Research projects for the Transitional Justice Practicum may involve finding secondary sources for background, human rights treaties, United Nations and other human rights documents, jurisprudence of international courts and of the UN Treaty Bodies, and the law of other countries, as well as documents specifically on transitional justice.
