This article introduces the author’s theory of justice as it relates to administrative reparations programs that often follow the work of a truth commission as part of a larger transitional justice process. In particular, the author presents the idea of a continuum of justice that recognizes that reparations respond to a whole host of justice needs felt by victims of human rights violations. These include reparative, restorative, civic and socio economic justice and can include both pecuniary and non-pecuniary measures. This article presents the preliminary framework for understanding this theory and has served as a foundation for later work for its further development.
