In Search of Justice and Peace offers articles about the very complex efforts undertaken by communities in various parts of Africa to secure justice and peace at the local level – sometimes in contrast to states, which ignore the local desire for justice or fail to provide their citizens with what a state is expected to provide, and sometimes in tandem with the institutions of the state. Traditional and informal justice systems have attracted the interest of scholars and international organisations alike.
