The Role of Communications in Transitional Justice

The publication argues that communications and narrative must occupy a much more central part of the vision of transitional justice. For too long, war crimes tribunals and truth commissions have tried to tell too much of the storyline of mass abuse on their own, disconnected from a larger national conversation and societal narrative that seek to re-imagine a different future in the aftermath of conflict or authoritarian rule. Some of the most powerful voices shaping such narratives – media, public intellectuals and artists – have been treated as just one more type of stakeholder, rather than as distinctive protagonists in creating the possibility of transformative results.
