This study explains how the four features of transitional justice, namely: criminal justice, truth telling, reparations and institutional reform apply to nations transitioning from oppression or civil war to democratic states. The two nations discussed are South Africa and Sierra Leone, both in the vanguard of transforming judicial procedures of transitional justice. It can be concluded that context is particularly important in transitional justice issues and that the case studies expand on the definition and understanding of transitional justice.
