The Hierarchies Policy Paper Series (HPPS) serves to create and disseminate policy relevant knowledge created within the network ‚Postcolonial Hierarchies in Peace & Conflict‘ (HIERARCHIES), while making it available to a broader audience of political actors of plural and various backgrounds. The Hierarchies PPS showcases research pieces that stem from collaborative research between scholars from the Global South and Global North. Our Policy Papers emphasize issues of reflexivity and positionality and question the largely unequal relations of power in which the production and circulation of knowledge regarding peace and conflict (studies) is embedded.

Susanne Buckley-Zistel and Selbi Durdiyeva are guest editing a Special Issue entitled ‚Decolonizing Theory and Practice of Transitional Justice‘ that will be published by Peacebuilding Journal (Taylor and Francis Online). The Special Issue brings together contributions that through various case studies and theoretical perspectives examine how transitional justice as a field engaged with decolonisation and what would decolonising the practice and theory of transitional justice mean.
