Overcoming Impunity: When Transitional Justice Pathways Lead to Accountability and When They Do Not

Thursday March 6, 2014, from 14:00 to 16:00
Room Fred Halliday - IBEI (1st Floor)
Research seminar
Leigh Payne (University of Oxford)

The notion of a 'global accountability norm' suggests that countries transitioning from authoritarian rule or civil conflict face have few options except accountability to deal with their past.  This paper questions that notion and examines the different transitional justice pathways to accountability and those that remain blocked. It further examines the impact of those pathways on the goals of strengthening democracy and improving human rights scores.  The findings are based on a new database that will soon be made publicly available.
