Interactive Justice in Transitional Justice: A Dynamic Framework

Emanuela Ceva, Colleen Murphy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article develops a new dynamic framework for the normative evaluation of processes of transitional justice capable of integrating instrumental and noninstrumental justice-based assessments grounded on concerns of “interactive justice.” Interactive justice is realized in or through institutional processes that treat people in ways appropriate to their status as institutional role occupants. Analyzing interactive justice in transitional justice is particularly important to pinpoint the distinct concerns of justice that might arise when employing a relational understanding of transitional justice. Our dynamic framework clarifies the distinct normative standards to meet when evaluating processes of transitional justice in virtue of the qualities of the relationship dynamics they themselves cause or constitute.
