Politics of Transitional Justice in the Great Lakes Region of Africa (Paperback) (Tim Murithi)
About this item
This book discusses the challenge of pursuing justice and reconciliation in the Great Lakes region, one of the most politically volatile regions in Africa, with a specific focus on Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The experiences of these countries is assessed through the prism of ?the politics of transitional justice’, and how it has either assisted or hampered the effectiveness of efforts to deal with the atrocities of the past. The book suggests that the failure of past interventions is due to the inability to collectively engage the violations in the individual countries which in effect form part of an inter-state regional conflict system. The book suggests that the implementation of the innovative notion of ?regional reconciliation’ is necessary to achieve the consolidation of peace in the Great Lakes region.
