This book discusses the evolving principle of transitional justice in public international law and international relations from the female perspective at a time when the concept is increasingly recognised by the international community as an effective framework in which to negotiate and manage a community's post-conflict transition to peace and stability. It adopts a gender lens with a particular focus on women's direct experiences and perceptions either as intended beneficiaries of transitional justice (TJ), protagonists in that process or as practitioners, in order to present a unique view in relation to the development of TJ.

The book is split into three parts: The Recognition and Contribution of Women in TJ Theory; Women as Protagonists in the TJ Process; Women as Participants in TJ; and The Role of Women in Non-Traditional TJ Processes. The book contains contributions from a range of experts in the field of TJ including Edith Weiss Brown, Eilish Rooney, Nahla Valji, Catalina Diaz and Julissa Mantilla. The range of experiences and knowledge in this collection provide a fresh and unique perspective in the blend of theory and practice that these contributions collectively provide.
