About this product
- DescriptionThis book examines the role of ecomic violence (violations of ecomic and social rights, corruption, and plunder of natural resources) within the transitional justice agenda. Because ecomic violence often leads to conflict, is perpetrated during conflict, and continues afterwards as a legacy of conflict, a greater focus on ecomic and social rights issues in the transitional justice context is critical. One might add that insofar as transitional justice is increasingly seen as an instrument of peacebuilding rather than a simple political transition, focus on ecomic violence as the crucial root cause is key to preventing re-lapse into conflict. Recent increasing attention to ecomic issues by academics and truth commissions suggest this may be slowly changing, and that ecomic and social rights may represent the next frontier of transitional justice concerns. There remain difficult questions that have yet to be worked out at the level of theory, policy, and practice. Further scholarship in this regard is both timely, and necessary. This volume therefore presents an opportunity to fill an important gap. The project will bring together new papers by recognized and emerging scholars and policy experts in the field.
