Post-Conflict Traditional Justice: a critical overview

Abstract

The authors examine the debates surrounding recent attempts to introduce local accountability mechanisms into structures of transitional justice in politically fragile and post-conflict situations. Issues discussed include the relevance of state capture, whether traditional justice is restorative, the discriminatory aspects of traditional justice and whether it is fully understood by outsiders.
