Restorative Justice and Political Forgiveness: A Comparative Analysis of Truth and Reconciliation Commissions provides a comparative, cross-national analysis of truth and reconciliation commissions (TRCs) in countries that have used these extra-judicial institutions to pursue justice and promote national reconciliation following a period of civil unrest marked by severe human rights abuses.
The research study for this doctoral dissertation focuses on the reasons behind the proliferation of truth and reconciliation commissions around the world in recent years, and examines whether the perceived effectiveness of these commissions is real and substantial. The analysis centers on the institutional design and composition of truth and reconciliation commissions, as well as the roles that these commissions play in the democratic transformation of nations with a history of civil conflict and human rights abuses.
