Justice as Prevention: Vetting Public Employees in Transitional Societies

This book, which is one of the end products of a multiyear research project undertaken by the International Center for Transitional Justice, aims to fill the research gap of what “vetting” means. It contains nine country-specific case studies, which provide a revealing comparison of how vetting processes can differ in similar contexts. It aims to explore how individuals can be vetted for political participation, given a past history of potential human rights abuses, during periods of transitional justice in post-conflict societies.
