Die zuletzt stark gestiegene Zahl von Historikerkommissionen auf nationaler, regionaler und lokaler wie auch auf bilateraler Ebene (Deutschland-Polen, Deutschland-Frankreich, Deutschland-Tschechien, Deutschland-Italien u.a.) zur Aufarbeitung der verbrecherischen Aspekte des „Dritten Reiches" und des Zweiten Weltkriegs können insgesamt als Teil einer neuen Geschichtspolitik sowie einer Erinnerungslandschaft begriffen werden, die die politische Kultur in Deutschland, aber auch in vielen anderen Ländern mit geprägt haben. Die Berichte der Kommissionen und ihrer Forschungsergebnisse werden regelmäßig der Öffentlichkeit zugänglich gemacht; zuweilen bildeten sie sogar – so im Fall der Veröffentlichung über „Das Amt" – den Anlass für langwierige öffentliche Kontroversen. Angesichts dieser Konstellationen waren eine systematische Bestandsaufnahme der jüngsten Entwicklungen sowie eine kritische Debatte der Tätigkeit der neu eingerichteten Historikerkommissionen überfällig. Die Einzelbeiträge des Tagungsbandes folgen einer gleichförmigen Struktur: Erstens geben sie Auskunft über den Modus der Beauftragung, die Form der Mitgliedschaft und generelle Arbeitsweisen. Zweitens geht es darum, die weiteren historischen Entstehungsbedingungen sowie die Arbeitsaufträge ausgewählter Kommissionen zu beleuchten. Drittens werden die hierbei aufgetretenen Probleme und auch die Grenzen ihrer Tätigkeit kritisch reflektiert. Darüber hinaus unterstreicht der Tagungsband die Notwendigkeit, Historikerkommissionen breite Handlungsspielräume zu gewähren, denn nur sie vermögen zur Überwindung nationaler und ideologischer Grenzen historischer Erkenntnisbildung einen substanziellen Beitrag zu leisten.

​Remaking Transitional Justice in the United States: The Rhetoric of the Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation Commission explores rhetorical attempts to authorize the Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation Commission—a grassroots, U.S.-based truth commission created in 2004 toredress past injustices in the city. Through detailed rhetorical analyses, the book demonstratesthat the development of the field of transitional justice has given rise to a transnational rhetorical tradition that provides those working in the field with series of “enabling constraints.” The book then shows how Greensboro stakeholders attempted to reaccentuate this rhetorical tradition in their rhetorical performances to construct authority and bring about justice, even as the tradition shaped their discourse in ways that limited the scope of their responses. Calling attention to the rhetorical interdependence among practitioners of transitional justice, this study offers insights into the development of transitional justice in the United States and in grassroots contexts in other liberal democracies. The volume is a relevant guide to scholars and practitioners of transitional justice as it brings into relief mechanisms of transitional justice that are frequently overlooked—namely, rhetorical mechanisms. It also speaks to any readers who may be interested in the communicative strategies/tactics that may be employed by grassroots transitional justice initiatives.

Transitional justice has become the principle lens used by countries emerging from conflict and authoritarian rule to address the legacies of violence and serious human rights abuses. However, as transitional justice practice becomes more institutionalized with support from NGOs and funding from Western donors, questions have been raised about the long-term effectiveness of transitional justice mechanisms. Core elements of the paradigm have been subjected to sustained critique, yet there is much less commentary that goes beyond critique to set out, in a comprehensive fashion, what an alternative approach might look like. This volume discusses one such alternative, transformative justice, and positions this quest in the wider context of ongoing fall-out from the 2008 global economic and political crisis, as well as the failure of social justice advocates to respond with imagination and ambition. Drawing on diverse perspectives, contributors illustrate the wide-ranging purchase of transformative justice at both conceptual and empirical levels.

Dealing with the aftermath of civil conflict or the fall of a repressive government continues to trouble countries throughout the world. Whereas much of the 1990s was occupied with debates concerning the relative merits of criminal prosecutions and truth commissions, by the end of the decade a consensus emerged that this either/or approach was inappropriate and unnecessary. A second generation of transitional justice experiences have stressed both truth and justice and recognize that a single method may inadequately serve societies rebuilding after conflict or dictatorship. Based on studies in ten countries, this book analyzes how some combine multiple institutions, others experiment with community-level initiatives that draw on traditional law and culture, whilst others combine internal actions with transnational or international ones. The authors argue that transitional justice efforts must also consider the challenges to legitimacy and local ownership emerging after external military intervention or occupation.

This volume addresses the role and importance of education for processes of transitional justice. In the aftermath of conflict and mass violence, education has been one of the tools with which societies have sought to achieve positive transformation. While education has the potential to trigger, maintain, and exacerbate conflict, it has also been designed to promote a deeper, more nuanced understanding of the past and to advance reconciliation, peacebuilding, and prevention. The original contributions in the book reflect on lessons learned from education policies of the past in post-conflict societies and seek innovative, sustainable, and context-sensitive grassroots approaches, designed to advocate critical thinking, values of inclusion and tolerance, and ultimately a culture of peace.
