There is no universal definition of transitional justice. Differences among scholars and practitioners in defining transitional justice can be divided to explanations of transitions from: dictatorship to democracy, and/or war to peace, and/or structural violence and inequality to equal and non-violent social structures. These differences are part of dissimilar understandings of the genesis and development of transitional justice. Aim of this paper is to describe the emergence and development of transitional justice, as concept, scientific discipline and praxis. The paper argues that transitional justice as a concept originated in the 1980s, after which it was gradually established as an independent scientific discipline, while its practical purpose was achieved only after the Second World War; although the embryos of transitional justice could be traced much earlier.
