The Judiciary and the Politics of Transition provides a critical analysis of judicial decision-making during transitions from conflict. The establishment or re-establishment of the 'rule of law' has become synonymous with democratisation and moving out of conflict. This privileging of law in turn ensures that judges become key actors in the process of transition, even in societies in which the judiciary previously had cooperated with repressive uses of law. Assessing the role of the judiciary in societies undergoing profound political and constitutional change, Marny Requa argues that an understanding of judicial motivation is necessary to more thoroughly assess post-conflict justice. Presenting an analysis of case law across three jurisdictions - Chile, Northern Ireland and South Africa - she argues that it is a strategic concern to maximise judicial independence in new, more liberal political systems, that informs judicial behaviour. Filling a noticable gap in the existing literature, The Judiciary and the Politics of Transition thereby develops an analysis of post-conflict legality that links transitional justice to the often overlooked dimension of judicial politics.
