Healing aspects of reparations and reparative justice for victims of crimes against humanity


This chapter proposes a theoretical framework of reparative justice that is a multidimensional, multidisciplinary, holistic conception of justice for victim/survivors of massive trauma such as crimes against humanity. This framework has been generated from the author’s own field work with victim/survivors. Importantly distinguishing between outcome and process, it lays out a variety of ways victim/survivors of multiple situations worldwide have experienced and viewed both the meanings and the related processes of reparation in particular, and of justice in general.
