Unintended Consequences in Transitional Justice : Social Recovery at the Local Level -  (Hardcover) - image 1 of 1

About this item

This book examines unintended consequences of institutional transitional justice cases, including truth commissions in South Africa, Sierra Leone, Peru, Kenya, and East Timor; international tribunals in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda; internationalized tribunals in Cambodia, East Timor, and Sierra Leone; cases and programs in the International Criminal Court; and other truth-seeking official entities, such as the gacaca court in Rwanda and the Commission of Truth and Friendship in Indonesia and East Timor. It emphasizes local responses to the programs, as well as signs of local self-recovery from a fragmented social and political situation. Within the context of these cases, it addresses the concept of unintended consequences, and failures and challenges of transitional justice in terms of why and how audiences challenge and dismiss the types of formal goodwill and ideals of a new society, program outreach and mobilization, the establishment of an official theatre in the form of a court or truth commission hearing, and the transitional justice body's main assumption that its activity can lead to national reconciliation, as well as the nature and implications of these local responses to formal transitional justice projects as types of unintended consequences.
