After Violence: Effects of Transitional Justice Mechanisms

This session discusses the findings of a new book edited by Elin Skaar, Camila Gianella and Trine Eide examining the effects of transitional justice on the development of peace and democracy. Combining case studies and comparative qualitative analysis, it tracks the experiences of Uruguay, Peru, Rwanda and Angola in dealing with their history of violence and repression through a combination of four different transitional justice mechanisms: criminal trials, truth commission, reparations, and amnesties.

Chair/introduction: Elin Skaar
