The International Journal of Transitional Justice invites submissions for its 2020 Special Issue, Creative Approaches to Transitional Justice: Contributions of Arts and Culture, to be guest edited by Cynthia Cohen, director of the Program in Peacebuilding and the Arts at Brandeis University’s International Centre for Ethics, Justice and Public Life, US.

This Special Issue invites works that document, critically engage with, and imagine new forms of artistic and cultural research and practice in/with transitional justice processes. The Issue seeks creative approaches crafted to address the legacy of human rights abuses and to effect social reconstruction and transformation through transitional justice in the wake of widespread violence and oppression. We welcome a variety of forms, including scholarship, practitioners’ reflections and creative works suitable for presentation in print format and on the journal’s website.

Submissions are invited on any questions and themes related to creative approaches to transitional justice. The submission deadline is July 1, 2019. Learn more about the submission guidelines. Papers should be submitted online through the IJTJ webpage at academic.oup.com/ijtj. For further information, please contact the managing editor at ijtj@csvr.org.za. View the full flyer.
