  • The Chilean Human Rights Archives and Moral Resistance to Dictatorship
    • Authors: Lira E.
      Pages: 189 - 196
      Abstract: One early response to the dictatorial regime and mass human rights violations in Chile emerged from religious bodies and a range of professionals from whom victims sought help. This was a moral and ethical rather than a politically or ideologically motivated response to the needs and rights of victims. It constituted a form of direct resistance to oppression while also providing a basis for documenting and remembering these experiences and the political repression. This moral and ethical resistance to impunity also provides a foundation for pursuing peaceful coexistence in Chile today.

  • Dividing the Spoils: The Impact of Power Sharing on Possibilities for
           Socioeconomic Transformation in Postconflict States
    • Authors: McAuliffe P.
      Pages: 197 - 217
      Abstract: AbstractTransitional justice (TJ) is increasingly concerned with transforming unjust economic structures through realizing socioeconomic rights. In postconflict states, the prospects for progressively realizing these rights are conditioned by ‘ordinary’ post-peace politics inasmuch as they are obstructive, permissive or actively constructive of pro-poor policies and redistribution, or receptive to civil society pressure from below. While these domestic politics in turn are conditioned to a significant extent by how political and economic opportunity is shared in power-sharing agreements, the impact of power sharing on possibilities for socioeconomic rights realization has attracted little attention in the TJ literature. This is regrettable as economic power sharing tends to monopolize the resources needed for redistributive or welfarist policies that would underpin a ‘respect, protect, fulfil’ framework of state obligations to reduce vulnerabilities associated with conflict-related poverty, violence and displacement. Furthermore, political power sharing often consolidates a political culture characterized by sclerotic policy formulation and ineffective governance, promotes unresponsive and exclusionary rule and further embeds or modifies preexisting patterns of patrimonial rule.

  • Choices of Justice: Effects of Civil War Termination on Postconflict
           Justice Mechanisms Implemented by the State
    • Authors: DeTommaso MM; Schulz M, Lem SB.
      Pages: 218 - 238
      Abstract: Abstract∞In the immediate aftermath of intrastate conflict, states utilize justice mechanisms to address past abuses and to move towards the construction of sustainable peace. However, despite the recognition that justice mechanisms may help facilitate the reconstruction of postconflict states, variance exists regarding which mechanisms states choose to implement. The diversity in choices of justice mechanisms following intrastate conflict raises a central question: under what conditions do states choose retributive and/or restorative postconflict justice mechanisms (PCJMs)' Using multinomial logistic regression, we draw upon existing strands of the civil war termination literature, including dual sovereignty, ‘spoilers’ and third-party intervention, to model PCJM implementation. We find evidence that the form of civil war termination and the presence of a UN intervention are strongly correlated with the quantity and type of justice mechanisms employed.

  • Language and International Criminal Justice in Africa: Interpretation at
           the ICTR
    • Authors: Doughty KC.
      Pages: 239 - 256
      Abstract: Abstract∞In this article, I examine the naturalized politics of language in international criminal justice in Africa, based on research conducted during three visits to the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) between 2005 and 2008. Though existing research has demonstrated the role of interpretation as meaningful, not technical, in domestic bilingual courts and other non-African international criminal tribunals, it remains underexamined in courts affecting Africa. I argue that ideas that the law and court actors had about language and about Rwandans’ language practices are important sites for understanding the constitution of justice and injustice. I use case proceedings to demonstrate how legal and linguistic interpretations are deeply imbricated at the ICTR, and show how problems of translation emerged for the parties themselves. More analysis is needed of interpretation within contemporary international criminal tribunals related to Africa to more fully examine complex dynamics of international legal regimes and justice affecting Africa.

  • Alien Tort Statute Litigation and Transitional Justice: Bringing the
           Marcos Case back to the Philippines
    • Authors: Davidson NR.
      Pages: 257 - 275
      Abstract: Abstract∞Transnational tort litigation of human rights abuses has generated an extraordinary amount of commentary. Yet there is little research on its implications for transitional justice (TJ). This article considers some of those implications through a study of a landmark case in which 10,000 Philippine victims of torture and other abuses sued Ferdinand Marcos in US courts under the Alien Tort Statute. Analyzing Marcos from the perspective of critical approaches to TJ reveals that while victim groups used the lawsuit in empowering ways in the Philippines, their claims also conflicted with the state’s transitional policy seeking economic redistribution. Ironically, enforcement difficulties mediated the conflict, leading to the enactment of a law compensating and recognizing a broader range of victims while preserving the redistribution policy. This analysis exposes some of the benefits and risks of transnational tort litigation against foreign state officials, and offers a novel perspective on the enforcement of transnational remedies for human rights violations.

  • Community Justice or Ethnojustice' Engaging with Customary Mechanisms
           to Reintegrate Ex-Combatants in Somalia
    • Authors: Ubink J; Rea A.
      Pages: 276 - 296
      Abstract: Abstract∞The inclusion of customary justice mechanisms is increasingly being invoked as an answer to the top-down, externally driven approach to transitional justice. But the practice of engaging with customary justice systems (CJS) proves complicated. The approach of governments and the international community has been criticized as ‘ethnojustice,’ where a male-elderly version of customary justice is invented and imposed, based on a myth of community consensus. In Somalia, the government and international community are currently considering a role for CJS in the reintegration of low-risk disengaged Al-Shabaab (AS) combatants. This article combines unique data on local perceptions regarding the return of ex-combatants in Somalia with insights from the literature, to critically examine the prospects of engaging customary justice mechanisms in South-Central Somalia in the reintegration of disengaged AS combatants and of a supporting role for the international donor community and the government.

  • The Puzzle of Transitional Justice in Ukraine
    • Authors: Bachmann K; Lyubashenko I.
      Pages: 297 - 314
      Abstract: AbstractAfter the Maidan uprising and the fall of President Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian parliament passed a number of transitional justice measures, including criminal trials and vetting of public employees, members of the law enforcement agencies and the judiciary. Despite strong public demand for retribution, only a limited number of suspects have so far been punished under the new laws. This article examines whether the way transitional justice in post-Maidan Ukraine has been carried out corroborates the assumption that can be derived from the transitional justice literature about the scope of retribution after negotiated transitions. It argues that transitional justice in Ukraine is generally better explained by ‘the politics of the present’ than by the ‘politics of the past,’ but that additional and so far underresearched factors shaping transitional justice outcomes should be included: administrative capacities and traditions and the nexus between a transitional government’s international commitments and the role of the judiciary, especially with regard to large-scale vetting policies.

  • Do Reparations Repair Relationships' Setting the Stage for
           Reconciliation in Colombia
    • Authors: Firchow P.
      Pages: 315 - 338
      Abstract: Abstract∞Colombia is groundbreaking in its approach of prioritizing victim involvement and participation in its peace process and including victims in peace agreement discussions in Havana. Colombia started this process with an ambitious reparations law, which aims to individually and collectively compensate almost 8.3 million victims in order to begin a reconciliation process. Yet the link between reparations and reconciliation is inconclusive. This study looks at the impact of reparations on reconciliation through a comparative matched-case research study of two Colombian communities that are demographically similar and have similar histories of violence, but starkly different levels of reparations. The study employs a participatory methodological approach using inductive indicators of peace and reconciliation created by the communities themselves in order to create surveys that measure the impact of reparations on reconciliation. The study finds that both communities display low levels of reconciliation according to community-defined indicators, and that there is little variance between the two villages in the way the community members define peace and reconciliation and in the levels of community-defined peace and reconciliation in each community. Based on these findings, the article concludes with four recommendations for more comprehensive and effective implementation of reparations programs in war-affected communities.

  • Displacements of Memory: Struggles against the Erosion and Dislocation of
           the Material Record of Violence in Burundi
    • Authors: Purdeková A.
      Pages: 339 - 358
      Abstract: Abstract∞This article investigates unofficial commemoration practices, interaction with sites of memory and the fate of the materiality of memory – mass gravesites and their remains – in the context of Burundi’s stalled transitional justice (TJ) process. The focus lies on postwar spaces where material remnants of a violent past struggle against new layers of developmental, infrastructural build-up and political disincentive. The article explores three concrete sites of violence in Burundi as these confront different forms of erasure and displacement of memory, ranging from physical removal and misplacement of remains to symbolic delinkage. In the process, the notions of the public secret, the labor of the negative and truth as revelation are revisited. The article closes with reflections on the latest developments in TJ in Burundi and whether the establishment in 2014 of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission spells a decisive break with the past.
