Happy 2013 from JiC!


(Hat-tip to Rupert Brodersen for the image!)

Dear readers,

Happy 2013 from all of us at Justice in Conflict!

2012 was a wonderful whirlwind for the blog. Keeping with our goal to expand debates on ‘justice in conflict’, we featured dozens of guest-posters who shared their views on a wide diversity of timely subjects. Our subscription rose steadily over the last twelve months to well over 3,100 followers. The KONY2012 bonanza brought the blog unprecedented international attention and scrutiny with 400,000 hits in two days. 

None of this would have been possible without you.

JiC would not be around if it wasn’t for the generous support and kind interest from readers as well as fellow writers and blogs. Whether it was through a shout-out on a blog or website, a retweet, a share on Facebook, a guest-post or just a couple of minutes of your time, you made 2012 a tremendous successful year for JiC. We are eternally thankful to all of you, the readers who drop by to read a post or two. 

We are especially grateful to those who went out of their way to help establish JiC as a trusted source of news and analysis on matters of international justice, transitional justice and conflict resolution. There are too many to name, but let me express my deepest gratitude to Kevin Jon Heller and the whole team at Opinio Juris, the great folks at Wronging RightsMarc Lynch, David Bosco, Fannie LafontaineKirsten Fisher, Chris TenoveDoug Saunders, Anna Holligan, Dov JacobsJames P. RudolphMarian Rodriguez, Jens David Ohlin, Rhodri C. Williams and the teams at CICC, CICRadio Netherlands Worldwide – International Justice, IJCentral, IWPR, Think Africa Press and the Open Society Justice Initiative

Here’s to a wonderful 2013, one with a little more justice and a little less conflict. 

Happy New Year!
