Transitional Justice in Historical Perspective: Book Launch of 'Justice framed: A Genealogy of Transitional Justice'
This talk was given as part of the Oxford Transitional Justice Research (OTJR) Seminar Series. Why are certain responses to past human rights violations considered instances of transitional justice while others are disregarded? This talk 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.
