Abstract

ABSTRACT:

In response to massive human rights violations, states are obliged not only to prosecute the perpetrators, provide reparations to the victims and tell the truth about the violations but also to guarantee their non-recurrence. The literature on prosecution, truth-telling and reparation abounds but guarantees of non-recurrence remain under-explored. This article begins to develop a more systematic understanding of this concept, situating it at the interface between corrective and distributive justice. While defining guarantees of non-recurrence broadly, the article provides criteria for developing specific prevention strategies in a given context. Particularly relevant in this regard are measures to disable abusive capacities.
