Write On! Transitional Justice & Development

(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers.) "Transitional Justice and Development" will be the theme of a forthcoming special issue of the International Journal of Transitional Justice. Editors seek papers for the issue, which, it's hoped, will help to "bridge the gap between the fields of transitional justice, development and peacebuilding" by publishing articles on a host of topics. Here's a sampling of some possible areas of focus:
► establishment of good governance through institutional reform post-conflict
► accountability of state and nonstate actors alike, for wrongdoing such as violations of economic and social rights and economic crimes
► gender, transitional justice, and development
► World Bank policies in post-conflict areas
► poverty and economic development programs as distributive justice or reparations
Deadline for submission, at the journal's website, is June 15, 2008. For further information, e-mail ijtj@csvr.org.za.
