Editorial Reviews


"Transitional justice focuses on states and societies that have suffered massive human rights abuses. Contributors … offer a comprehensive, three-volume encyclopedia with nearly 300 entries from noted scholars and practitioners … Summing up: recommended."
J. A. Hardenbrook, Choice

"Encyclopedia of Transitional Justice is a marker of the field’s maturity - a representation of strength gained through exercise as well as a resource for its future growth."
Pablo de Greiff, International Journal of Transitional Justice

'This formidable three-volume Encyclopedia contains a wealth of information and is a very useful reference collection, especially for those wanting a global overview … It impressively presents the first ever drawing together of the enormous amount of work that has been done on dealing with past, across the world and across disciplines … The editors have taken on a monumental task and done an admirable job in compiling this treasure trove of information. Most readers will learn about concepts, approaches, work, countries and institutions that they are not familiar with … This important work also has the potential to enrich further the perspectives of its contributors, expert as they already are in a particular area.' Suzanna Linton, International and Comparative Law Quarterly

Lavinia Stan emigrated to Canada from Romania shortly after the Revolution of December 1989, which ousted the communist regime of dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. A graduate of the University of Toronto (PhD in Political Science), Stan has been working on democratization, broadly defined. More exactly, she has published extensively on religion and politics (mostly with her husband, Concordia University Theology professor Lucian Turcescu) and transitional justice (the way in which post-dictatorial countries reckon with their recent human rights abuses by adopting lustration, property restitution, access to secret archives, rehabilitation, and compensation or by launching court trials and memorialization projects). The author, co-author, and editor of volumes published with Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Columbia University Press, and Dartmouth, Stan is former chair of the Wildavsky Prize Committee of the Religion and Politics Section of the American Political Science Association, member of the Scientific Council of the Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of the Romanian Exile, member of the editorial boars of eleven scholarly reviews in North America and Europe, and current Regional Editor for Europe of the internationally acclaimed peer-reviewed Women's Studies International Forum.
