Summary
This volume contributes to the growing body of transitional justice literature by providing insight into how truth commissions may be beneficial to victims of mass violence, based on data collected in Timor-Leste and Solomon Islands.℗l℗lIt contains empirical, comparative research that draws on literature in the fields of victim psychology, procedural justice, and transitional justice. ℗lUltimately, this study is guided by the puzzle of why truth-telling in post-conflict settings has been found to be both helpful and harmful to victims of mass violence. Existing studies have identified a range of positive benefits and negative consequences of truth-telling for victims; however, the reasons why some victims experience a sense of healing while others do not after participating in post-conflict truth commission processes continue℗l to remain unclear. Hence, to address one piece of this complex puzzle, this book explores the illuminating question: What pathways lead from truth-telling to victim healing in post-conflict settings? One answer, this book argues, may be voice.℗l℗lBuilding on the proposition that having voiceĺla key component of procedural justiceĺlcan help individuals to overcome the disempowerment and marginalisation of victimisation, this book investigates voice as a causal mechanism that can create pathways toward healing within truth commission public hearings.℗l℗l Comparative, empirical studies that investigate how truth-telling contributes to victim healing in post-conflict settings are scarce in the field of transitional justice and this book begins to fill an important gap in the existing body of literature. From a practical standpoint, by enhancing understanding of how truth commissions can promote healing, the findings and arguments in Victim Healing and Truth Commissions: Transforming Pain Through Voice in the Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste provide insight into how the design of transitional justice processes may be improved in the future to better respond to the needs of victims of mass violence. ℗l
