Much literature about democratic transitional justice focuses on the content of post-conflict law, particularly the tension between reconciliation and accountability; that is, when a democracy takes power from a dictatorship that has violated human rights, should the leaders of the previous regime be prosecuted, or should they be granted amnesty? Let us call questions like that, collectively, “the substance question.”.
