This collection of essays brings together jus post bellum and
transitional justice theorists to explore the legal and moral
questions that arise at the end of war and in the transition to
less oppressive regimes. Transitional justice and jus post bellum
share in common many concepts that will be explored in this volume.
In both transitional justice and jus post bellum, retribution is
crucial. In some contexts criminal trials will need to be held, and
in others truth commissions and other hybrid trials will be
considered more appropriate means for securing some form of
retribution. But there is a difference between how jus post bellum
is conceptualized, where the key is securing peace, and
transitional justice, where the key is often greater
democratization. This collection of essays highlights both the
overlap and the differences between these emerging bodies of
scholarship and incipient law.
