Chapter 5 We can make claims too: acts of inclusion in Côte d’Ivoire
Restricted access

Chapter 5 focuses on the counterpoint to the citizen as a rights bearer by looking at acts of citizenship in Côte d’Ivoire in which those who have been excluded from the justice process demand a voice and to have their claims heard. Drawing on qualitative fieldwork the example of supporters of the former President is used to unpick a problematic victor’s justice consolidated through transitional justice. In doing so the chapter contests the boundaries placed around who can make claims in Chapter 2 and illustrates the importance of history and context in understanding these acts of justice claim-making. The inability of the transitional justice process to grapple with the longer history of struggle has disconnected transitional justice from the ongoing debates and contestations which are important for securing long-term peace.
