Oxford Transitional Justice Research (OTJR) is an inter-disciplinary network of more than 200 academics and students working on issues of transition in societies recovering from mass conflict and/or repressive rule. Founded in 2007, it is now one of the largest and most diverse academic communities conducting research in this field.
OTJR hosts a weekly academic seminar, which brings leading researchers and practitioners to Oxford to discuss aspects of their work. OTJR is dedicated to producing high-quality scholarship that connects intimately to practical and policy questions in transitional justice, including research within the following themes: domestic and international prosecutions; truth commissions and other truth-recovery processes; commemoration and memorialisation; local and traditional practices; compensation and reparations; and institutional reform.
The academic op-eds published on JusticeInfo.net under our label have been edited by Oxford Transitional Justice Research.
