Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book addresses key questions and present thoroughgoing critiques through a broad and yet detailed approach, providing an essential grounding for further investigations into the contemporary realities of transitional justice."—Federica Guglielmo, Journal of Africa


"An impressive panel of nineteen authors with diverse backgrounds and expertise has collectively produced a highly stimulating and challenging book that provides a rare combination of intellectual scrutiny, unconventional thinking, and solid field knowledge. Shaw and Waldorf bring impeccable personal knowledge of at least two countries that have experienced major international, hybrid, and national transitional justice undertakings: Sierra Leone and Rwanda. Their intellectual rigor can be felt throughout the publication, which generally brings great coherence and relevance to an unusually eclectic array of countries and contexts."—Thierry Cruvellier, African Affairs


"[Localizing Transitional Justice shows a] compelling sensitivity to the realities of international intervention's complex and sometimes contradictory nature . . . By identifying problems in current conceptualizations of transitional justice, and by urging shifts in thinking that address these issues, the essays in this volume seek to encourage both more responsive and more effective approaches to localized intervention."—Yale Journal of International Law


"Localizing Transitional Justice addresses extremely current debates on transitional justice and post-conflict justice interventions, bringing together a range of excellent cases. The contributors are doing some of the most exciting, cutting-edge work in this area. Together, they have written a sterling book which maps out a new field with remarkable breadth and clarity. It will definitely be a key reference in the field."—Rachel Sieder, Centro de Investigaciones y Estudios Superiores en Antropología Social (CIESAS), Mexico


"Full of innovative ideas and trenchant critiques, Localizing Transitional Justice offers smart recommendations for how we should approach and conceive of transitional justice today. Among its strengths are its distinction between post-repression and post-war transitional justice, its critique of equating the local with the traditional, and its incisive assessment of the 'toolkit' approach to transitional justice. This is a powerful new contribution to the study of human rights."—Mike McGovern, Yale University
