  • Transitional Justice Beyond Blueprints

    Ethnographies and Case Studies

    Edited by Claire Garbett, Sari Wastell

    Remedying Human Rights Violations Beyond Transition

    By Matthew Evans

  • Principled International Criminal Justice

    Lessons from Tort Law

    By Mark Findlay

  • Law and Asylum

    Space, Subject, Resistance

    By Simon Behrman

    In contrast to the claim that refugee law has been key in guaranteeing a space of protection for refugees, this book argues that law has been instrumental in eliminating spaces of protection, not just from one’s persecutors, but also from the grasp of sovereign power. By uncovering certain…

  • A Legal Philosophy of Contradiction

    Liberia and the Dialectic of Law

    By Shane Chalmers

    It is the very condition of modernity that an institution cannot depend on a god, tradition, or any other transcendental source to secure its foundations – which thereby come to rest upon – or rather in, and through – its subjects. Never wholly separated from its subjects, and yet never identical…

    Politics of Transnational Law

  • Violence, Law and the Impossibility of Transitional Justice

    By Catherine Turner

    The field of transitional justice has expanded rapidly since the term first emerged in the late 1990s. Its intellectual development has, however, tended to follow practice rather than drive it. Addressing this gap, Violence, Law and the Impossibility of Transitional Justice pursues a comprehensive…
