Abstract

What is the relevance of transitional justice processes in contexts of ongoing violence and authoritarianism, and how can human rights concerns be addressed in such contexts? Papers in this panel explore this research question from a variety of methodological perspectives, from quantitative to qualitative studies. The authors analyse various forms of human rights violations, such as enforced disappearances or violations of economic and social rights, thereby moving beyond the traditional focus in the field of transitional justice on the violations of civil and political rights. They discuss a number of case studies, including Mexico, South Africa, the Philippines, Mali and Cote d’Ivoire, and focus on the role of key actors in these contexts, from the political elite to human rights defenders and their allies abroad.
