    Overview

    Summary
    The focus of this thesis is the role of transitional justice after genocide is committed. Genocide is the deliberate destruction of a people and their culture. Much attention is paid to stopping and preventing genocide yet despite these efforts, genocide occurs throughout the world today. Transitional justice is an expanding field that is concerned with reconciling and rebuilding societies after a mass atrocity, such as genocide, has occurred. When World War II was over the Allied powers created an International Military Tribunal to hold those that had perpetuated the Holocaust accountable. Genocide became an internationally recognized crime that could be prosecuted. The principals applied to Germany where resurrected after the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. Multiple transitional justice methods were utilized to attempt to bring justice and reconciliation to the distressed societies. Not all transitional justice measures employed were equally successful and problems that arose are also discussed.
