CRIC postdoc Michelle Parlevliet publishes blog post reflecting on the 'Justice and Peace' series from Knowledge Platform - Security & Rule of Law

CRIC postdoc Michelle Parlevliet has published a blog post reflecting on what can be learned so far from the Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law blog series on ‘Justice and Peace'. Based on her reflections Parlevliet argues that a more comprehensive understanding of justice is needed which appreciates justice not just as a normative framework of legal rules, but also values its relational and process-oriented dimensions, and the way in which justice manifests in political, cultural, economic and social structures and institutions.

Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law was established by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2012 as part of the Ministry’s knowledge policy. Key to its agenda are improving security for civilians, building the rule of law, and developing knowledge infrastructure in developing countries to enhance  long term self-reliance.
