Indigenization of Transitional Justice in Islamic Countries; Opportunities and Challenges of Integrating Islam into Liberal Transitional Justice

Research output: Contribution to ConferenceAbstractAcademic

Abstract

Building trust within the community, gaining public support and increasing the participation of different stakeholders in the aftermath of conflict are all contingent on localization, indigenization and perceived legitimacy of the designed and implemented transitional justice model. Despite the growing interest in the internationalization of transitional justice, it is still questionable if - and to what extent – the implementation of this primarily liberal approach to post-conflict situations is also applicable, possible – let alone desirable – in (conservative) non-western countries, notably Islamic ones. Based on a literature review and expert interviews, we will in this presentation discusses the desirability and essentiality of integrating Islam into liberal transitional justice and explores some of the key opportunities and challenges of formulating an Islamic model of transitional justice. We argue that, no matter how challenging it may by, integrating Islamic law into the existing models is not only desirable but also essential.
