Towards transitional justice? Black reparations and the end of mass incarceration


King, Desmond S; Page, Jennifer M (2018). Towards transitional justice? Black reparations and the end of mass incarceration. Ethnic and Racial Studies, 41(4):739-758.

Abstract

There are many commonalities between the goals of transitional justice and domestic redress movements. We look at the movement for reparations for enslavement and Jim Crow in the United States as an example of a domestic reparations movement, and argue for the usefulness of the concept of transitional justice. We are particularly interested in showing that a future democratic transition – the end of mass incarceration – could animate a renewed push for reparations and a formal investigation into America’s legacy of racial injustice.
