ABSTRACT. Reisman claims that in liberal societies, the criminal law model presupposes some moral choice or moral freedom on the part of the putative criminal. Findlay stresses that terrorist violence and violent justice responses have much in common: while contextually dependant, both forms of violence lay claim to contestred legitimacies. Cassese observes that in the world today we witness, on the one hand, the spread of violence and gross violations of human rights, and, on the other hand, a deep crisis in the international means of effectively reacting to those gross violations. On Laplante’s reading, the Latin American experience has played a significant role in shaping the debates and direction of transitional justice in several respects. (pp. 185–188)
