  • Joanna R. Quinn


This chapter covers transitional justice, which is correlated with the principle of universality, human rights violation, and impunity. It explores the social implications of brutal conflict. Retributive justice, restorative justice, and reparative justice have been enumerated as the three approaches to transitional justice that differ from their goals and mechanisms such as trials, truth commissions, and apologies. The three paradigms of transitional justice represent perspectives on how a society can be rebuilt. The chapter then references the case study regarding the civil conflict in Uganda to highlight the difficulty of resolving the social implications of prolonged violent conflicts by putting the aforementioned paradigms into practice.
