About the Project
What kind of transitional justice programmes (judicial, non-judicial, or combination thereof) within power-sharing political settlements enhance both short and long-term prospects for peace, justice, and democracy? This is a crucial question not only from a policy perspective but also from the perspective of conflict management theory. Yet, very little systematic comparative research has been carried out regarding the effect that the establishment of power-sharing institutions has on the attainability of particular kinds of justice, and thus, arguably, on the sustainability of peace and (the quality of) democracy.
This project thus proposes to examine this question empirically and analytically within a framework of a broader theory of conflict management that takes account not only of the institutional design in agreements but also of the context in which they are negotiated, implemented, and operated, and thus of less tangible (and in a sense less easily measurable) factors of (local) leadership and (international) diplomacy.
