Transitional Justice in Post-Conflict Societies: Conceptual Foundations and Debates

Transitional Justice in Post-Conflict Societies: Conceptual Foundations and Debates

Part of a publication that outlines transitional justice in the context of the current Bangsamoro peace process in the Philippines, this chapter provides a brief overview of the conceptual evolution of transitional justice. It then discusses challenges likely to be met in post-conflict transitional settings – namely, multiple armed groups, legal pluralism, ethnic and religious tensions, socioeconomic marginalization, and gender inequality – along with some of the strategies used to address these challenges.
