Transitional justice is an emerging field of law and inter-disciplinary academic study. Latin America has been at the forefront of the transitional justice movement since the early 1980s, and countries such as Argentina, Chile, and Peru continue to serve as models for other societies seeking a peaceful post-conflict transition. Similarly, Latin American countries and regional institutions have been pioneers in the development of culturally specific human rights laws, practices, and institutions. The promotion of human rights, from both an international and domestic perspective, provides the foundation for all transitional justice movements. Therefore, combining the study of human rights with transitional justice is necessary. Teaching human rights and transitional justice requires an interdisciplinary perspective that includes an emphasis on law, politics, history, and culture. Latin America, and South America in particular, is a perfect setting for studying these important topics.
