Since the 1980s, transitional justice mechanisms have been increasingly applied to account for mass atrocities and grave human
rights violations throughout the world. Over time, post-conflict justice practices have expanded across continents and state
borders and have fueled the creation of new ideas that go beyond traditional notions of amnesty, retribution, and reconciliation.
Gathering work from contributors in international law, political science, sociology, and history, New Critical Spaces in Transitional
Justice addresses issues of space and time in transitional justice studies. It explains new trends in responses to post-conflict
and post-authoritarian nations and offers original empirical research to help define the field for the future.
