Abstract

In this paper, we provide an overview of transitional justice in Tunisia, Egypt, and Bahrain. We begin each section with a brief overview of the violence and repression that gave rise to transitional justice demands. Then, we outline transitional justice processes to date, offering some preliminary conclusions on their strengths and weaknesses. We conclude by examining some of the factors shaping transitional justice in each country and offer some thoughts on the likely future course of transitional justice.

Keywords: transitional justice, Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Arab Spring, trials
