Contestation pervades the politics of justice during periods of violent conflict, and also in subsequent peacebuilding initiatives. This chapter considers the principled contestation over justice norms that emanates from a diverse group of civil society actors engaged in the practices and politics of justice and peacebuilding. It pays particular attention to faith-based organizations. Many faith-based organizations have developed conceptions of justice that represent important alternative visions to legalistic or retributive approaches. Locally based organizations are also important in advancing and embedding alternatives to dominant international norms on transitional justice and peacebuilding. We find that no single consensus has emerged on appropriate peace, justice, and accountability strategies. Important areas of tension and contestation among actors engaged in transitional justice and peacebuilding remain salient even as areas of collaboration and cooperation among these actors have emerged in recent years.

Keywords:   transitional justice, peacebuilding, faith-based organizations, civil society, human rights
