transitional justice and memory in europe (1945-2013)
nico wouters
What lessons can we learn from history, and more importantly: how? Efficient transitional justice policy evaluation requires, inter alia, an historical dimension. Nevertheless, history as a profession remains somewhat absent in the multi-disciplinary field of transitional justice. The idea that we should learn lessons from history continues to create unease among most professional historians. This volume is a major contribution in the search for synergies between the agenda of historical research and the rapidly developing field of transitional justice.
