Welcome to the second issue of SOLIDARITY! – Thank you for all the positive responses to our maiden issue of SOLIDARITY last year.
The articles published in this issue highlight the TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE as an overarching theme. Transitional justice is not only a timely concern in a number of countries experiencing post-conflict or post-authoritarian transitions, in which IID and our partners are active. It also allows for a confluence of all the issues lying at the core of IID’s work. Peace and human security, self-determination, human rights and democratization are concerns that underpin transitional justice issues.
Another relevant topic covered in this latest issue is the constantly evolving discourse on Responsibility to Protect (RtoP). A special contribution on the transitional justice experience in Colombia by IID’s former fellow Kristian Helbolzheimer is likewise featured.
Please continue to give us your feedback and suggestions for SOLIDARITY’s future articles. We would love to hear from you. – THE EDITORIAL TEAM.
