Section 12 (p.111-115) contains a helpful implementation checklist outlining the guiding principles which can be tailored to each State's priorities and individual concerns.

Transitional justice is often approached in the following forms: criminal prosecutions, truth seeking/fact finding, reparations, reforms.
