Genocide. Torture. Slavery. Loss of culture and livelihood. Is peace really an illusive ideal? This book tackles the question of how to “repair” these crimes against humanity. Case studies from around the world offer insight into struggles for post-conflict justice, legal frameworks for reparations, issues of ethics and political compromise, and professional and personal risks to researchers, victims, and human rights advocates.
