Transitional Justice

Transitional justice has been defined as:

The full range of processes and mechanisms associated with a society’s attempts to come to terms with a legacy of large-scale past abuses in order to ensure accountability, serve justice and achieve reconciliation. These may include both judicial and nonjudicial mechanisms with differing levels of international involvement (or none at all) and individual prosecutions, reparations, truth-seeking, institutional reform, vetting and dismissals, or a combination thereof. (UN Secretary-General Report, The Rule of Law and Transitional Justice in Conflict and Postconflict Societies, paragraph 8)
