Transitional Justice

How experiences of devastating violence are dealt with is of significance for post-war societies and formerly repressive regimes? Post-conflict measures include criminal prosecutions, restorative projects, such as truth and reconciliation commissions and reparations, as well as memorials and memory politics. Research projects at the Center take different analytical approaches to examining the mechanisms and dynamics, often focusing on bottom-up perspectives, as well as victimhood and perpetration. This is accompanied by an exploration of the relationship between global transitional justice measures and the local level, including the resulting frictions and conflicts.
