The International Journal of Transitional Justice invites submissions for its 2009 special issue titled "Whose Justice? Global and Local Approaches to Transitional Justice" to be guest edited by Professor Kimberly Theidon, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Harvard University and Executive Director of Praxis Institute for Social Justice. Papers may address topics such as the definition of transitional justice and its goals, the relationship between international justice mechanisms and local processes, the role of stakeholders, how local justice mechanisms might be incorporated into state and international interventions, and the role of ritual in accessing guilt and administering various forms of justice. The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2009. Papers should be submitted online at the IJTJ webpage. For questions or further information, please contact the Managing Editor by clicking here.
