Eric Wiebelhaus-Brahm is Associate Professor in the School of Public Affairs at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. His research agenda focuses on transitional justice (TJ), human rights, post-conflict reconstruction, and democratization. Specifically, he critically examines the empirical and normative arguments used to justify the introduction of a range of social and economic policies in societies emerging from periods of conflict and repression. Much of his work has focused on using social science research methods to evaluate transitional justice mechanisms. Other streams of research address the political economy of TJ and diaspora mobilization around TJ. Eric published Truth Commissions and Transitional Societies with Routledge in 2010 and has two forthcoming volumes on the implementation record of the recommendations of 13 Latin American truth commissions. He also is the author of over two dozen peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, including pieces that have appeared in journals such as the Journal of Peace ResearchInternational Journal of Transitional Justice, and Journal of Human Rights. Eric is a co-investigator on a 5-year UK Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF)-funded “Gender, Justice and Security Hub”, an interrelated set of projects that address the challenges of achieving gender justice and inclusive security in twelve conflict-affected societies. Eric earned his Ph.D. in political science from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
