Guest: Kelli Muddell, Director of the Gender Justice Program at the International Center for Transitional Justice When a brutal war ends, it’s not as though the sun comes up, the flowers bloom and all is again right with the world. The consequences of conflict linger and must be dealt with. Communities rebuilt, psychological trauma addressed. Healing can also mean holding people accountable for atrocities committed in the fog of war. It’s called “transitional justice” – basically ensuring justice is done in the transition from war to peace. And Kelli Muddell, of the International Center for Transitional Justice, says it’s not a one-size-fits all thing. Men and women suffer war in different ways and have different demands for justice, after the fact.
