This is the author's full study on Post Conflict Justice in Asia, commissioned by Professor M. Cherif Bassiouni. The assignment was to conduct a study under the topic of ‘Post-Conflict Justice’, focusing on the situation in Asia. It was part of a wider study into Post Conflict Justice around the world (‘Fighting Impunity and Promoting International Justice’), and similar studies were also commissioned from experts on Latin America, Africa, Europe and the Arab world. All of this was under the auspices of the European Commission funded project on ‘Fighting Impunity and Promoting International Justice’.
The 238 page study on Post Conflict Justice in Asia focused on 12 countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, East Timor (Timor Leste), India, Indonesia, Japan, Nepal, Pakistan, The Philippines and South Korea. The Introduction in Part I contained a brief overview of the post-conflict situation in Asia. Part II addressed each of twelve countries individually. Part III provided observations, analyses, and lessons learned. Part IV was a postscript, containing recommendations that emerged from intensive discussions with 40 carefully selected experts, who were invited to a conference in Bangkok at the end of April 2009 to discuss the study of Post Conflict Justice in Asia.
