Colleen Murphy, Associate Professor, Texas A & M University, speaks about “transitional justice” referring to the justice involved in transitioning from conflict or authoritarianism to democracy and, in particular, responding to past wrongdoing in this context. She examines the assumption that transitional justice is a unique or distinctive kind of justice presumed to be distinct from the ordinary kinds of justice found in stable democracies.
