Summary
  • This major study examines the successes and failures of the full transitional justice programme in Sierra Leone. It sets out the implications of the Sierra Leonean experience for other post-conflict situations and for the broader project of evaluating transitional justice
  • 'This book charts the way forward for studies at the boundaries of law and politics. Not only does it present detailed research on the case of Sierra Leone, but it also tackles the somewhat amorphous notion of transitional justice itself, bringing together different and sometimes competing perspectives and presenting a framework for evaluating transitional justice in other contexts. It is essential reading for researchers and practitioners operating in conflict and post-conflict situations.'- James Gow, Professor of International Peace and Security, King's College London How to evaluate the success of transitional justice? This insightful book sheds needed light on the problem in its contemporary manifestation; offering an interdisciplinary lens that encompasses the range of current global phenomena and adding significantly to our understanding of the comparative law and politics of these questions on the ground.- Ruti Teitel, Ernst C.Stiefel Professor of Comparative Law, New York Law School This important new volume will be of great interest both to those concerned with evaluating efforts to pursue accountability after conflict in Sierra Leone and also to anyone engaged in broader debates within transitional justice, particularly over the implementation of retributive and restorative policies. Practitioners and scholars alike will find this book highly illuminating.- Chandra Lekha Sriram, Professor of International Law and International Relations, University of East London 'Evaluating Transitional Justice' is a major advance in how we think about transitional justice success and failure in Sierra Leone and elsewhere. The authors provide groundbreaking contextualized analyses of the selection, design and function of TJ measures. This is an indispensable contribution to the transitional justice literature.'- Helen Clark, Administrator, United Nations Development Programme 'Evaluating Transitional Justice' provides no easy answers, but in exposing us to the often contradictory views of its experts, this invaluable book reminds us of how critically important it is to get transitional justice mechanisms right, so that the terrible injustices of the past are not repeated in the future.' - Zainab Hawa Bangura, Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General on Sexual Violence in Conflict; former Foreign Minister of Sierra Leone 'This important new volume will be of great interest both to those concerned with evaluating efforts to pursue accountability after conflict in Sierra Leone and also to anyone engaged in broader debates within transitional justice, particularly over the implementation of retributive and restorative policies. Practitioners and scholars alike will find this book highly illuminating.' - Chandra Lekha Sriram, Professor of International Law and International Relations, University of East London
