The rule of law and transitional justice in conflict and post-conflict societies


UN Security Council

This report from the United Nations (UN) Security Council discusses the UN's increased focus on transitional justice and the rule of law in conflict and post-conflict societies. This focus will yield important lessons for future UN activities. Advancing justice, peace, and democracy in fragile post-conflict settings requires strategic planning, careful integration and sensible sequencing of activities. Approaches must incorporate interdependent institutions, civil society and victims in order to be effective.
