Chapter 4 The citizen as a holder of virtues
Restricted access

Chapter 4 is focused on the transitional justice citizen as a holder of virtues. Drawing on policy documents and transitional justice reports, as well as the relevant scholarship in the field, the chapter deconstructs ideas of civility, order, and ‘good’ victim which are key to transitional justice discourse and policy. These ideas frame a virtuous transitional justice citizen who is expected to play a role in upholding the principles and practices of transitional justice. This is problematic because it assumes passivity, but also protects transitional justice from thorough critique of its associated practices and relations of power.
