Why are certain responses to past human rights violations
considered instances of transitional justice while others are
disregarded? This study interrogates the history of the discourse
and practice of the field to answer that question. Zunino argues
that a number of characteristics inherited as transitional justice
emerged as a discourse in the 1980s and 1990s have shaped which
practices of the present and the past are now regarded as valid
responses to past human rights violations. He traces these
influential characteristics from Argentina's transition to
democracy in 1983, the end of communism in Eastern Europe, the
development of international criminal justice, and the South
African truth commission of 1995. Through an analysis of the
post-World War II period, the decolonisation process and the Cold
War, Zunino identifies a series of episodes and mechanisms omitted
from the history of transitional justice because they did not
conform to its accepted characteristics.
