Transitional Justice and Indigenous Peoples: A Tool for Decolonisation?

Lauren Dempster, Claire Wright

Research output: Other contributionpeer-review


In this episode, Dr Lauren Dempster interviews Dr Claire Wright (QUB School of Law). The episode explores the relationship between indigenous peoples and transitional justice, with reference to the case of Colombia. We analyse the capacity of contemporary peacebuilding processes to deal with structural injustices rooted in colonial legacies, in this case racial hierarchies. We also explore other ways in which the post-colonial State can transform its relationships with Indigenous Peoples, namely via intercultural education, recognition of autonomy, and prior consultation.
