Transitional justice has become a core component of policies for building sustainable peace. It is meant to operate transformations at the individual, collective and institutional level that are supportive of peace. The links between transitional justice and other peacebuilding policies such as DDR, SSR and rule of law support has long been recognised, though many challenges remain in how to best coordinate or integrate these policies. The role of transitional justice in conflict prevention and rebuilding social cohesion has also garnered growing interest. At the same time, (post-) conflict societies are challenging environments for transitional justice to operate in, as the unstable political and security context can limit transitional justice’s ability to operate effectively and with independence.
