Beyond Transitional Justice reflects upon the state of the field (or non-field) of transitional justice in the current conjuncture, as well as identifying new possibilities and challenges in the fields with which transitional justice overlaps (such as human rights, peacebuilding and development).

Chapters intervene at the cutting edge of contemporary transitional justice research, addressing key theoretical and empirical questions, and covering critical, international, interdisciplinary, theoretical and practice-oriented content. In particular, the notion of transformative justice is discussed in light of the emerging scholarship defining and applying this concept as either an approach within or an alternative to transitional justice. The book considers the extent to which transformative justice as a concept adds value to scholarship on transitional justice and related areas and asks what the future might hold for this area as a field – or non-field.

A timely intervention, Beyond Transitional Justice is ideal reading for scholars and students of in the fields of human rights, peace and conflict studies, international law, critical legal theory, development studies, criminology, and victimology.
