Peace versus Justice examines the challenges and prospects of promoting both peace and accountability, specifically in African countries affected by conflict or political violence.

Peace versus Justice? Truth and Reconciliation Commissions and War Crimes Tribunals in Africa
(Seminar Report No. 22)

There is often a demand for justice in Africa's post-conflict societies that, in turn, is often counter-balanced by the need for reconciliation. A key focus of the concerns captured in this 22nd report in CCR's policy seminar reports series is an analysis of the dilemmas posed by the establishment of peace without justice, as opposed to the establishment of justice without peace. The report is based on a seminar held in Cape Town, South Africa, on 17-18 May 2007.
