This course will explore the field of transitional justice in Africa. Since South Africa’s transition from apartheid, African states have prominently featured as sites of transitional justice practice in the areas of criminal justice, truth commissions, reparations and institutional reform. Yet recent events in South Sudan, Sudan and Zimbabwe have revealed how essential it is to ensure that peace and justice are seen as mutually reinforcing imperatives. Building sustainable peace require that legacies of violence are addressed and that the state functions for all citizens irrespective of ethnicity, religion, gender and race. This course is thus intended to confront some of the central moral and political debates evident in the transitional justice field including the relationships between peace, justice, accountability and reconciliation on the continent.
