Abstract [en]

This article engages with friction between international and local actors in an era of globalised transitional justice processes with cases from post-war Sri Lanka. We find that in the context of a victor's peace, the prevailing actor can mobilise ordinary people against international transitional justice initiatives, and can stage localised processes which do not involve the grass-roots level to any real extent. An actor-oriented perspective sharpens friction as an analytical concept by moving beyond the broad categories of conflicts between the local and the global. Our analysis highlights four significant actors in post-war justice: the internationalised state, domestic constituencies, the international community and diasporas, whose encounters, roles and internal complexity determine the outcomes of transitional justice processes.
