The Political Settlements Research Programme welcomes the publication of an Open Access Special Issue on the local realities of law and justice, available from the International Journal on Minority and Group Rights. The Special Issue has been compiled by the London School of Economics’ Justice and Security Research Programme, and includes some of their research findings on local justice in the cases of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, northern Uganda, South Sudan and Timor-Leste. It has been edited by JSRP research director Professor Tim Allen and JSRP fellow Dr Anna Macdonald, and addresses many issues that we are concerned with through the PSRP, in particular the roles which ‘justice’ and the ‘rule of law’ play in political settlement processes, and in jurisdictions affected by conflict.
