"A GlassHouse book"
Based on author's thesis (doctoral - Ulster University, 2021) issued under title: Reimagining the role of civil society in transitional justice processes relating to Soviet repressions in Russia.
"This book examines how civil society engaged with transitional justice in Russia, demonstrating a broad range of roles civil society can undertake while operating in a restrictive political context. Based on socio-legal research, the study focuses on three types of civil society groups dealing with the legacies of the Soviet repression in Russia - a prominent organisation that works on recovering historical truth, the International Memorial; a parish of the Orthodox Church of Russia operating at a former mass execution and mass burial site, the Church at Butovo; and contentious groups that could hinder attempts at reckoning and promote state narratives built on the Stalinist and World War II victory myths. This book explores an often-overlooked case of Russia's transitional justice 'from below.' It provides insights into how even in authoritarian contexts, civil society can adopt imaginative, piecemeal, and, at times, unconventional ways of seeking justice outside and in the absence of official and institutionalised transitional justice measures. This book will appeal to scholars of transitional justice, memory studies, human rights, and democratic and civil society theory, as well as policymakers and practitioners in these fields, and others with interests in Russian and post-Soviet studies"-- Provided by publisher.
