Could the volatile nature of Maldivian politics render the Transitional Justice Act meaningless?



A discussion between lawyer, writer, activist and Senior Editor Mushfiq Mohamed (@cloudsdescend) & Editor Kamil Ahsan on the fractious political climate of the Maldives, repression, and the legal mechanisms and practices to seek accountability for past atrocities committed by the state detailed by the Transitional Justice Act, which passed in December 2020.


What is the current political climate of the Maldives and why should South Asians everywhere pay attention? How does the recent legislation comport with political realities? What would enforcement in today’s Maldives look like?


As Mushfiq wrote in Himal:


“When it comes to implementation, the elephant in the room remains: why would survivors feel comfortable seeking reparations when some of the perpetrators of atrocities hold high-level government positions?”
