Justice Info in partnership with Oxford Transitional Justice Research

Justiceinfo.net partners with Oxford Transitional Justice Research (OTJR), a network of high-level transitional justice researchers which is part of the University of Oxford. Justiceinfo.net publishes OTJR publications under the joint responsibility of its editor and OTJR.

Oxford Transitional Justice Research (OTJR) is an inter-disciplinary network of academics and students working on issues of transition in societies recovering from conflict and/or repressive rule. Founded in 2007, it is now one of the largest and most diverse academic community conducting research in this field. It is hosted at the Centre for Criminology of the Law Faculty of the University of Oxford.

The entries in this section have been selected and edited by OTJR’s Editorial Team on behalf of JusticeInfo.Net.
