Abstract:
This paper, will thus attempt to analyze reports on the aforementioned cases of transitional administrations in East Timor, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq, to establish the inherent contradictions that currently exist between a need for local ownership for successful transitional administrations, between the set goals and the resources made available to accomplish the goals, as well as the actual intentions of the primary actors of these temporary and "benevolent" foreign autocracy and the actual implementations and execution of the transitional authority. Concepts of justice in such transitions will also be discussed. Certain relevant details of the four case studies will be provided, following which the contradictions will be discussed. The paper will conclude with certain caveats to prevent the issues faced by transitional administrations in the past, as well as a need to predict possible obstacles in the future.
