Transitional Justice

Ruti Teitel’s Transitional Justice is a reference material for contemporary understanding of transitional justice. It has a historical depth that embraces a comparative approach establishing the law as a dynamic enabler of change driven by the collective that endorses multiple judicial mechanisms. She examines the Nuremberg trials as an example of criminal justice legacy; and other core components such as amnesty, historical inquiry/official truth (truth commissions), reparations and constitutional/administrative measures adopted by societies in transition.
