The Impact of Transitional Justice on Human Rights and Democracy

Professors Leigh Payne (University of Oxford) and Kathryn Sikkink (University of Minnesota) have been awarded a grant by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK) (Grant No. AH/I500030/1) and the National Science Foundation (USA) (Grant No. 0961226) in 2010 to carry out research on the impact of transitional justice. This collaborative project explores when, why, and how trials, truth commissions and amnesties advance human rights and democracy.
