Summary Illustrates the dilemma faced by the human rights community during peace negotiations, both in finding a place at the table and ensuring accountability for human rights violations. Those undertaking peace talks often argue that peace should come before justice. The many case studies in this book, from Sierra Leone to Colombia, not only confront this notion, but also challenge human rights advocates to recognize the difficulties in negotiating justice and protecting the rights of victims. the final chapter on the Colombian peace process in particular offers hope, showing the importance of including victims and civil society in these discussions.
