Transitional Justice in Egypt: One Step Forward, Two Steps Back
This policy brief discusses transitional justice and the prospects for institutional reform in post-Mubarak Egypt. The author argues that much depends on the nature and speed of the transition, and that outcomes remain uncertain. Whether and how Arab transitional states embrace transitional justice – especially how they manage the fates of their deposed rulers and essential institutional reforms – will indicate whether they intend to break with the past and build public institutions that inspire civic trust.
