While concentrating on specific case studies, it also offers a comprehensive picture of the general debate on accountability for past human rights violations which usually takes place in societies in transition from repressive regimes. The study underlines the complexity of the political reality in which the expectations for accountability for state-sponsored violations of human rights are answered. It argues for the necessity of combining individual and collective responsibility for human rights violations.
