Overview

This book brings together many of the most prominent contemporary national and international human rights and transitional justice scholars in one collection. The book focuses in particular on the intersection between judges, transitional processes, and human rights discourses. It brings together doctrinal, socio-legal, and criminological perspectives on a range of topics including the judicial construction of national and supra-national constitutions, the role of human rights discourses in transition from conflict, and in a range of sites in more 'settled' societies. The book draws upon comparative experiences in South Africa, Canada, the USA, Britain, Ireland, the Balkans, the Weimar Republic, and elsewhere. It also situates that analysis within supra-national and indeed subnational frameworks.
