Book Review: Transitional Justice and Education: Learning Peace by Clara Ramirez-Barat and Roger Duthie

Despite increased attention given to the idea that education has often been used as a tool to spread misinformation and spark division, education usually is not considered an element of transitional justice (i.e., prosecutions, truth commissions, reparations, and other economic and institutional reforms). In Transitional Justice and Education: Learning Peace, editors Clara Ramírez-Barat and Roger Duthie fill a major gap in the literature on education in emergencies, and on reconstruction after periods of conflict and authoritarianism, by exploring what it means to address transitional justice and legacies of the past from an education perspective and how this relates to a broader peacebuilding agenda.
