This thesis seeks to explain the process required for engaging in a process of transitional justice for the Rohingya in Myanmar through analyzing like case studies that span a variety of transitional justice methods. The study will first explain the instability of the status-quo for the Rohingya, and outline the key problems that the transitioning Myanmar faces in regards to its worst-off minority. The study will then assess the current literature in transitional justice and psychology, and note where they intersect, and any gaps in the scholarship that this study will fill. Using the literature and a discussion of the theories in transitional justice and psychology, the study will then embark on the three case studies of the ICTY, ECCC, and TRC in South Africa that depict a variety of aspects of transitional justice in practice. These case studies will then be analyzed against the case of the Rohingya, and judged for their efficacy in the transitioning state of Myanmar. Finally, the study will conclude with an establishment of the next steps required to conduct a transitional justice process, and the policy implications that these steps may have.
