Transitional Justice In Posteuromaidan U by Lyubashenko Igor
The book focusses on transitional justice policies implemented in Ukraine since the beginning of 2014. The author covers investigations and trials vetting historical justice as well as two issues that only partially refer to the 'transitional justice toolbox': attempts to deal with the consequences of the armed conflict in Donbas and elements of institutional reforms that supplement transitional justice efforts. He explains constrains faced by each of the mentioned policies and interrelationships between them. The author comes to the conclusion that the Ukrainian case presents both similarities and significant differences in comparison to other post-communist countries which implemented such policies much earlier. Furthermore there is no evidence supporting the thesis that the implementation of these policies provides visible effects in terms of democratisation of the country.
