International PeacekeepingInternational Peacekeeping: Special Issue: HIV/AIDS and Post-Conflict Societies in Africa
This edition of International Peacekeeping explores HIV/AIDS in post-conflict societies in Africa. It assesses the key aspects of these societies that contribute towards the spread and impact of the epidemic, such as poorly functioning national health systems, marginalisation of vulnerable mobile populations, and rigidified gender norms. It also explores practical approaches to addressing these and other challenges, and innovative means of responding to HIV/AIDS during the periods of opportunity that post-conflict settings provide. The journal's guest editors are Johannes John-Langba and CCR project officer Antonia Porter.

Promoting Restorative Justice in South Africa's Correctional Services
CCR's Prisons Transformation Project (PTP) hosted a one-day seminar on 6 October 2005. Participants were drawn from the SA Department of Correctional Services (DCS), key stakeholders involved in the justice field and ex-offenders who participated in restorative justice programmes while serving their sentence. The themes in this report emanate from the presentations and discussions from the seminar and provide insight into the discourse on restorative justice, with particular focus on the complexities of implementing restorative justice in a post-sentencing environment.
