This paper examines the links between education and transitional justice initiatives in contexts affected by conflict. It argues that conceptually there can be meaningful mutual reinforcement between the educational goal of participation and the transitional justice goals of recognition and trust. Moreover, practical overlap between education and transitional justice initiatives offers opportunities for more direct synergies.
