Where Law Meets Reality
Forging African Transitional Justice
Considering the core debates about how to develop a transitional justice agenda that best responds to the African context, this book addresses the tension between justice, peace and reconciliation.

Christof Heyns, UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, and Professor of Human Rights Law, University of Pretoria

The most important part of addressing the challenge to break the hold of human rights violations on any society, is to understand the dynamics at work. This book brings together some of the people who are best placed to guide us in this process in Africa, and to present us with a guide to action.
