Why does conflict deteriorate into violence and war? How does collective memory influence healing and social justice in post-conflict situations? What is the role of judicial accountability - crime and truth commissions - for past violations of human rights? This work looks at how people rebuild broken communities and the tensions that arise in post-conflict situations.;It addresses questions of social justice as both ends and means of healing and reconciliation, examines the nature and dynamics of conflict, and considers judicial accountability and the role of truth commissions as approaches to healing and social justice. The book includes consideration of the gendered elements of conflict and concludes with a chapter on the pursuit of justice as an underlying cause of civil wars in Africa and elsewhere.
