Oxford Transitional Justice Research (OTJR) is an inter-disciplinary network of more than 150 Oxford staff and students working broadly on issues of transition in societies recovering from mass conflict and/or repressive rule. Founded in 2007, it is now one of the largest and most diverse academic communities conducting research in this field. OTJR is dedicated to producing high-quality scholarship that connects intimately to practical and policy questions in transitional justice, including the following themes: theoretical and philosophical debates; domestic and international prosecutions; truth commissions and other truth-recovery processes; commemoration and memorialisation; local and traditional practices; compensation and reparations; and institutional reform.
