(Re)imagining Peace + Justice is an ongoing conversation about conflict, transitional justice, and human rights amongst students and scholars at SOAS, University of London. It is published by the Centre on Conflict, Rights and Justice and managed by a team of graduate student editors.

(Re)imagining Peace + Justice publishes opinion pieces, original research, perspectives from the field, and reviews focusing on human rights, social justice, intersectionality, justice theory, and regional conflicts. We also publish posts by guest contributors, including practitioners, activists, and scholars from other institutions. The opinions expressed on this blog do not necessarily reflect the views of the Centre on Conflict, Rights and Justice or SOAS, University of London.

Our goal is for (Re)imagining Peace + Justice to become a participatory platform where our readers can learn from our contributors and we can engage in discussions about critical tensions in the theory and practice of transitional justice. Please review our submission guidelines for more information about contributing.
