Righting Victim Participation in Transitional Justice


Columbia University. The Institute for the study of human rights.

In a new research project, Tine Destrooper sets out to conduct a systematic analysis of the scope, nature, modalities and role of victim participation in transitional justice processes, to study empirically and comparatively how participation shapes victims’ experience and understandings of justice and their rights, and to develop a critical victimology framework and establish how this framework can be used to conceptualize victim participation in ways that contribute to TJ’s goal of engendering just, stable and secure societies.
