The Interplay between Transitional Justice and Reconciliation in Peacebuilding

Project description

The nexus of transitional justice and peacebuilding

In the aftermath of massive and widespread human rights violations, reconciliation is key to rebuilding relationships. Transitional justice processes are vital to prevent recurrence of violent conflict and foster sustainable peace. Further in-depth empirical and theoretical knowledge is needed to explain the interplay of transitional justice and reconciliation processes in peacebuilding. To fill this knowledge gap, the EU-funded InterTJRPB project will compare processes in different contexts. It will use the comparative case study method to investigate the topic in Algeria and Rwanda. The results will assist in evidence-based decision-making, a process currently based on weak data, ex ante evaluation and speculation.
