African Comparative Transitional Justice Project

The Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation, South Africa, is carrying out research which seeks to presents a comparative analysis of 12-country case studies in Africa, where transitional justice mechanisms have been implemented. There are no systematic comparative studies conducted of a larger sample of African countries’ experiences of transitional justice mechanisms. The study will map out a range of transitional justice mechanisms across the different case studies employed between 1990 and 2011. Through synthesizing qualitative and quantitative approaches to transitional justice, the study will provide useful context for understanding national, regional and international dynamics that shape these processes. Further, it is envisioned that the study will contribute to the critical debates in African transitional justice and advance policies and measures that are contextually based and robust.
