Summary This volume brings together multiple, interdisciplinary viewpoints to explore and examine the current state of transitional justice. Contributors are drawn from both academic and practitioner backgrounds, working in fields such as human rights, humanitarian law, public policy, sociology, cultural and peace studies, and earth jurisprudence. Current Issues in Transitional Justice: Towards a More Holistic Approach aims to contribute to the debates on what transitional justice is and how it can be achieved in the different contexts. The contributors to this volume look beyond the traditional legal, and often narrow, focus of donors and governments to shift the debates towards a more holistic approach, which involves examining the different patterns of reconciliation experienced by societies with an aim of building a more viable and sustainable peace. This book reviews the pros and cons of the typical transitional justice models and situations, provides a forum for contributors who challenged the traditional models, and outlines current and future issues for the field. A selection of the topics covered include: · The International Criminal Court · Post-Apartheid South Africa · Child soldiers · Sex work and women?s empowerment in Southeast Asia · Ecological jurisprudence in a changing climate This collection of essays presents the most up to date knowledge and status of the field of transitional justice, and also highlights the emerging debates in this area, which are often overseen and underdeveloped in the literature. As such, Current Issues in Transitional Justice: Towards a More Holistic Approach is an invaluable resource to human rights lawyers, academics, policy makers, sociologists, anthropologists, and all practitioners in societies that are undergoing a transition of any kind.
