Professor Murphy’s work focuses on the theory of transitional justice—the processes of societal repair and reconciliation that are morally required in the wake of systematic and large-scale wrongdoing and injury. In this episode, we talk about the prospects for political healing and restoration in the United States in the wake of the 2020 election, the January 6th Capitol Riot, and ongoing disinformation campaigns.
