In Chapter III, I move on to a theoretical account of how the judicial review of transitional justice bills should affirm the integrity of democratic principles and, at the same time, constructively engage the political emotions characterising post-conflict circumstances. In order to sketch such an account, Ronald Dworkin’s “law as integrity” is supplemented with elements from the literature on reflective judgment and the sociology of law. Two cases from South Africa and Argentina serve as illustrations.

Keywords:   judicial review, transitional justice, “law as integrity”, reflective judgment, South Africa, Argentina
