ICTJ, Caspar Fithen

This document is a review of vetting programs that took place in two post-conflict (Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Liberia) and two post-authoritarian (Hungary and the Czech Republic) countries during the 1990s and early 2000s. It assesses the legacies of vetting and lustration processes in the contexts of post-conflict reconstruction and post-authoritarian transition respectively, and offer recommendations on how to improve the formation of integrity-enhancing mechanisms in future, comparable situations.
