Transitional Justice and the Public Sphere

Engagement, Legitimacy and Contestation

Edited by: Chrisje Brants, Susanne Karstedt

Transparency is a fundamental principle of justice. A cornerstone of the rule of law, it allows for public engagement and for democratic control of the decisions and actions of both the judiciary and the justice authorities. This book looks at the question of transparency from the perspective of transitional justice. Bringing together perspectives of scholars from across the disciplinary spectrum, the collection looks at the question from the socio-legal, cultural studies and practitioner perspective. Taking a three part approach it looks firstly at basic principles guiding justice globally before exploring courts and how they make justice visible. Finally the collection looks at the interface between law, transitional justice institutions and the public sphere.
