Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Research on the (promised) effects of transitional justice efforts on victims of civil conflicts remains rare. This article seeks to advance the field of research in two ways. First, this article focuses on how Peruvian victimhood became politicized as a consequence of a promised transitional justice mechanism: the Peruvian reparation program. Second, by highlighting the diverse motivations of members of grassroots victims' organizations, it brings to the fore important lessons on the successes and challenges of this transitional justice mechanism. © 2013 by Johns Hopkins University Press.
