"People come to 'save Africa' and 'teach Africa' about transitional justice. As if we don't know how to think. Why can't we conceptualize transitional justice for ourselves?" As I sat in the University of Pretoria Law Building and listened to Tshepo Madlingozi speak, I knew his words would shape the way I think about international law throughout the rest of my career. Tshepo is the Chairperson of Khulumani, an attorney, and a professor at the University. When he invited me to the 2-day Global Campus of Human Rights conference, I was excited to attend. The conference was led by Tshepo and a professor from London. I spent the following 2 days listening to many different philosophies, problems, and potential solutions surrounding transitional justice in post-conflict countries. What I walked away from the conference believing is this: there is more than one way to be in the world.
