Abstract

Recent discussions around ‘distant justice’ suggest that transitional justice is more legitimate and more effective when it has both a physical proximity to the scene of the violations and necessary healing, as well as a moral proximity to the preferences, values and needs of those who have experienced violations. A local turn in transitional justice literature has not, however, fully grappled with the embodied nature of experiences of justice and how the individual or group may be displaced, forced to move, or disappeared. This panel focuses on such various groups and their experiences of, and contributions to, transitional justice processes. It brings together papers on different case studies – such as Bosnia-Herzegovina, Colombia, El Salvador and Syria – which vary with regards to subjective temporalities of conflict and the spaces available for transitional justice. The papers examine the role of victims of enforced disappearances as agents in the search process; the transnational mobilization practices of conflict-generated diaspora members; and the creation of alternative narratives and identities by members of the post-conflict generated diaspora through everyday interactions.
