Transitional justice and constitutionalism: towards a new understanding?

As processes of transitional justice have been applied around the world in post-conflict and post-authoritarian societies, they have become widely recognized as valuable tools to support the establishment of rule of law, ensure accountability, and facilitate reconciliation. The panel will examine the interconnections between transitional justice and domestic constitutional frameworks in order to develop a deeper understanding of how the two fields can better serve their respective and mutual objectives. Based on the acknowlegment that both transitional justice and constitution-building should be designed and implemented as highly context-specific processes, the panel will discuss the growing number of comparative examples of how such processes actually interact and how together they can play in realizing the UN‘s SDG 16 on the promotion of peaceful, just, and inclusive societies through access to justice and effective and accountable institutions.

Chair(s): Giulia Tiberi
