Conflicted Democracies and Gendered Violence : The Right to Heal: Internal Conflict and Social Upheaval
About this item
Conflicted Democracies and Gendered Violence examines the political, sexual, and foundational violence in the governance of conflicted democracies in the postcolonial world, calling attention to the urgent need for transformation. Through oral history, archival, and legal research undertaken over three years, this interdisciplinary work underscores the need for transitional and transformative justice mechanisms in conflicted democracies to address protracted conflict and social upheaval. India serves as the case study here, exemplified by ongoing conflicts in Jammu, Kashmir, and Punjab. Expanding on current justice and accountability methods and espousing the right to heal, in this volume, scholars and practitioners raise critical questions regarding the state, civil society, and diverse institutions, and most importantly, the victim-survivors.
