Abstract
Explores two transitional justice mechanisms, the International Criminal Court for the former Yugoslavia and the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Analyzes the ways in which the ideal-type philosophical conceptions of retributive and restorative justice are realized in practice during times of transition by examining the rhetoric that emerges from these two mechanisms. I find that comparing the rhetorics of restoration and retribution reveals a set of normative and practical tradeoffs that must be considered when choosing future transitional justice mechanisms.
