My kingdom for a horse! Geopolitics and the challenges of transitional justice and justice in Syria
FriEnt Essay 01/2015

This essay seeks to address the challenges of an impartial justice process for post-conflict Syria given the national complexities and the role of external actors with entrenched geopolitical interests and being involved in the ongoing violence.

Furthermore, it argues the necessity to demonstrate a genuine international political will should the various actors intend to end the conflict and impartially deal with the past. If this political will is not manifested and secured, peace for Syria will be more of a mirage than a reality and the Syrian population and victims will have to wait long before justice will be made for past crimes and atrocities.
