The political, social, and legal problems confronting societies after periods of mass human rights violations or war have attracted increasing attention from policymakers and scholars in the last two decades. South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission; the prosecution of Chile's former dictator, Augusto Pinochet; Argentina's reparations to victims of its military regime; and Sierra Leone's internationally-supported Special Court are among the best-known policy responses to those problems. In this seminar we will use a series of case studies to examine the legacies of such abuses and the institutions and processes that governments most often use to address them, comparing the approaches of countries in Latin America, Africa, and Europe.
