Transitional Justice -
As a philosopher, normative claims are of interest in themselves. But in the context of transitional justice, critical evaluation and defense of normative claims matters for an additional reason: they are a source of deep disagreement. Divergent and incompatible judgments about processes by citizens and by observers of transitional justice processes often reflect at their core disagreements about what morality demands in transitions. There are debates about what the goal of particular processes of transitional justice should be: forgiveness, retribution, restorative justice, peace, deterrence, ending impunity, social unity, and/or economic justice. Disagreement about overall aim leads in turn lead to disagreements about the defensibility of certain responses to wrongdoing.
