Providing a refreshing take on transitional justice, this thoroughly revised second edition brings together an expanse of scholarly expertise to reconsider how societies deal with gross human rights violations, structural injustices and mass violence. Contextualised by historical developments, it covers a diverse range of concepts, actors and mechanisms of transitional justice, while shedding light on the new and emerging areas in the field.

Wholly engaging with the field's upward trajectory, this Handbook explores important new ground on existing issues of transitional justice, including masculinities, witnesses and the role of archives. This updated edition also engages with newly evolving areas of study, such as counter-terrorism, climate change, colonialism and non-paradigmatic transitions.

With theoretical and empirical contributions from a rich array of world leading practitioners and scholars, this cutting-edge second edition Research Handbook is an invaluable academic resource for students and researchers of sociology, transitional justice, criminal law and human rights law. With expertly written chapters it also provides practitioners with a consolidated overview of the latest scholarship and analysis of legal and policy developments.
