Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The publication reports on the many ways in which Latin American courts are being used to promote, press for and shape truth,justice, reparations and guarantees of non-repetition in post-authoritarian and post-conflict settings. The prologue discusses the many ways in which domestic legal systems are providing space to create but also to challenge and limit transitional justice demands and responses; discusses new justice system actors in re-democratisting states as 'transitional justice entrepeneurs', and points to some of the potential pitfalls of, first, excessive neopunitivism in the face of large scale violence or ongoing conflict such as in the case of Colombia; second, allowing judicial branches not necessairily versed in or sympathetic to transitonal justice aims to oversee and overdetermine public policy measures in areas other than criminal or civil justice,. Finally it discusses regional and regionalising dynamics in recent TJ developments, of which the Network producing the publication is itself a significant example
