Maarten van Munster receives NWO doctoral grant

22 June 2022
CICJ-affiliated researcher Maarten van Munster of The Hague University of Applied Sciences has been awarded a grant in NWO's program for Doctoral Grant for Teachers for the project 'A New Dawn for Angola? A Case Study of Angola’s Delayed Transitional Justice Process'. CICJ's Joris van Wijk and Catrien Bijleveld will act as PhD supervisors.

When Angola's 27-year civil war ended in 2002, its government declared a general amnesty for all perpetrators. Recently, however, the country entered into delayed transitional justice (TJ), aimed at memorialization, truth-seeking, and reconciliation. Very little is known about factors that contribute to the success or failure of such processes that are vital for enduring peace. This study critically analyses risk and promotive factors for the Angolan case and measures the popular perception of the TJ process. Results will not only enrich literature, but also aid other countries confronted with the question of how to address past atrocities in post-conflict situations.
