The Arts of Transitional Justice

Culture, Activism, and Memory after Atrocity

by Peter D. Rush,

​​The Art of Transitional Justice examines the relationship between transitional justice and the practices of art associatedwith it. Art, which includes theater, literature, photography, and film, hasbeen integral to the understanding of the issues faced in situations oftransitional justice as well as other issues arising out ofconflict and mass atrocity. The chapters in this volume take up this understandingand its demands of transitional justice in situations in several countries:Afghanistan, Serbia, Srebenica, Rwanda, Northern Ireland, Cambodia, as well asthe experiences of resulting diasporic communities. In doing so, it brings tobear the insights from scholars, civil society groups, and art practitioners,as well as interdisciplinary collaborations.
