Catholic Approaches to Transitional Justice and Reconciliation Processes
This tool is for those working in post-conflict situations and trying to engage transitional justice and reconciliation in a distinctively Catholic way. It offers an understanding of transitional justice and reconciliation through the lens of Catholic tradition; highlights lessons learned from worldwide Catholic engagement; provides guidance on project design, evaluation, and assessment; and includes a comprehensive list of global resources for further learning. It does not prescribe recipes for action, but gathers a diversity of on-the-ground learning and experience that can be adapted and utilized by Catholic peacebuilders as they discern, plan, and evaluate action for transitional justice and reconciliation in specific contexts. It is a joint publication of the Catholic Peacebuilding Network, the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs, and CRS.
