Focus on Transitional Justice

The Brookings-LSE Project on Internal Displacement and the International Center for Transitional Justice recently wrapped two years of research on "Transitional Justice and Displacement." The "project explored the ways in which transitional justice processes can address forced migration, involve refugees and IDPs, and support durable solutions to displacement. The results of this project suggest that transitional justice may be an important part of effective responses to forced migration. At the same time, incorporating displacement as a critical human rights concern may strengthen transitional justice initiatives."

Findings were presented at a panel discussion in New York and an event in Washington, DC.  Project outputs include the following:
- a book entitled Transitional Justice and Displacement, ed. by Roger Duthie (Social Science Research Council, July 2012),
- a series of case studies, and
- a final project report
