Abstract [en]

This chapter provides a short overview and investigation of gender perspectives on transitional justice. It examines some of the gender implications of the 'transitional' theory of justice. The chapter explains conceptualising the role of gender analysis in transitional justice and what it means to add gender to transitional justice. It discusses key points of contention and the case study of Bosnia-Herzegovina; zoom in on gendered justice gaps connected to accountability, acknowledgement and reparation. The chapter explores gender as a relational concept that more broadly informs an understanding of power, exclusion and marginalisation. Transitional justice practices aim to right wrongs in the past, institutionalise the rule of law and new juridical and normative frameworks in the present, as well as prevent the recurrence of violence and future harm. The efforts to break the impunity for these crimes and unveil the extensive harm suffered by women paradoxically risks cementing conservative gender roles of women as victims and men as perpetrators.
