Justice in Translation

(p.241) Conclusion
The Justice Facade

Alexander Laban Hinton

Oxford University Press

Beginning with a discussion of Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia civil party Neth Phally, the book’s conclusion, “Justice in Translation,” argues for a dynamic, discursively-informed phenomenological justice approach to transitional justice, one in keeping with the spirit of critical transitional justice studies and that foregrounds ethnographic attunement to lived experience, discourses, interstices, and the combustive encounters masked by the justice facade. To this end, the chapter reconsiders the meaning of justice in Cambodia through the lens of translation and the acts of imagination transitional justice may catalyze. Refocusing on “justice in translation” in this manner, the conclusion contends, enables us to rethink the ends of transitional justice and the paths forward after genocide and mass violence.

Keywords:   translation, Neth Phally, combustion and imagination, critical transitional justice studies
