It is striking that the field of transitional justice has thus far given little attention to persons with disabilities. Addressing this significant gap, this article reflects on what a more disability-inclusive transitional justice might look like. It does so by examining two particular dimensions of inclusiveness – accessibility and storytelling. While there are few explicit discussions within transitional justice research about accessibility, storytelling, in contrast, is a prominent theme. What this article specifically accentuates is the need for inclusive storytelling spaces within transitional justice processes and it highlights in this regard the unexplored significance of multi-sensory storytelling.
