When a country moves from conflict to peace, the transitional period includes a desire for justice that can take many forms. Arnaud Kurze’s research project explores the creation of “alternative transitional justice spaces” in post-conflict contexts, particularly concentrating on the role of art and the impact of social movements to address human rights abuses.

In this edition of Wilson Center NOW, we speak with Kurze about his findings.
