How to Make Peace: Transitional Justice and Gender This paper is written to bring the issue of “transitional justice” as a site of discussion for peace process in Turkey. Transitional justice as an approach towards peace supports women’s active participation in peace processes as well as develops an understanding that is responsive to women’s problems based on conflict and/or war situations. Based on the examples of gender-responsive transitional justice processes, transitional justice mechanisms are important for creating democratic and inclusive societies and peace processes. Global civil society is an important actor in showing that transitional justice has an understanding of the interconnectedness between local and global. In this context, the initiatives and demands by Women’s Initiative for Peace will be mentioned.
