The Journal of International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict / Humanitäres Völkerrecht (JILPAC / HuV) specialises in the legal analysis surrounding armed conflicts. The Journal focuses on the contemporary challenges of international humanitarian law and related fields, including international human rights law and international criminal law as well as on practical challenges of humanitarian aid and peace missions.

For this special issue, we particularlyinvite submissions of articles focusing on the following topics:

  • The role of transitional justice in the establishment of peace and human rights protection;
  • The interplay of international humanitarian law and human rights law during the phase of transitional justice;
  • The role of truth and justice commissions;
  • Actors shaping transitional justice;
  • Reparations and the promise of non-repetition;
  • The role of vulnerable groups (e.g. women, children, LGBTIQ*) in transitional justice;
  • Transitional justice from critical perspectives.

Submissions focusing on other topics are equally welcome.
