Transitional Justice and Development: Making Connections

4/26/2011

eds. Pablo de Greiff and Roger Duthie

Developing societies emerging from conflict and authoritarianism are frequently beset by poverty, inequality, weak institutions, broken infrastructure, poor governance, insecurity, and low levels of social capital. The same countries are also often the scene of massive human rights violations which leave in their wake victims who are displaced, marginalized, handicapped, widowed, and orphaned — people who have strong claims to justice. Yet those who work alongside each other to address the interconnected concerns of development and justice do not always work together to provide coherent responses to those concerns. This book examines the relationship between two fields that, academically and in practice, have proceeded largely isolated from one another.
