Summary
"This book offers a panoramic assessment of access to transitional justice from a gender perspective. Dealing with conflict, justice and women, it also contains a post-colonial theoretical component. It offers a deep analysis of the situation in Timor-Leste. Empirical evidence drawn from interviews with female participants in its post-conflict reconciliations and reparations mechanisms, as well as from judges and prosecutors, gives a fascinating insight into precisely how justice was served. In so doing it contributes to debates concerning women's participation in transitional justice and addresses how gender equality should be conceived in post-conflict states seeking to rebuild. Human rights scholars, practitioner as well as NGO workers will find this unique and thought-provoking study invaluable."--, Provided by publisher
