In some circumstances traditional mechanisms can complement conventional judicial systems and provide the potential for promoting justice, reconciliation and a culture of democracy. This book is both a general knowledge resource and a practitioner's guide. It is aimed at both national bodies seeking to employ traditional justice mechanisms, as well as external agencies supporting such processes. Each case study and the conclusions have clear recommendations for how traditional justice mechanisms can be implemented.
