Righting Victim Participation in Transitional Justice

Project description

New understanding of transitional justice

Mass atrocities and systematic abuse devastate societies and test judiciary systems. Transitional Justice (TJ) refers to how governments and other actors seek accountability for past wrongdoings and try to ensure justice. Victim participation is increasingly considered a crucial element of these processes. However, TJ processes face practical, financial and political constraints, both in and of themselves, and when it comes to victim participation. The EU-funded VictPart project will conduct systematic analyses, empirical and comparative studies to establish an academic framework on the subject of victim participation in transitional justice. It will provide new insight into victim experience, and help organise victim participation processes in efficient ways to improve legal stability and safety in societies that are transitioning towards democracy.
