Drawing upon various theoretical approaches and the analysis of case studies, the current study explores the use of amnesty as a way of dealing with civil strife in national and international conflicts. Conflicts in different regions in the world are examined to illustrate the use of amnesty for restorative purposes, but primary attention will focus on how Arab countries are using amnesty in the current war on terror. By examining amnesty in both general and specific cases, the present study hopes to shed light on the effectiveness of amnesty as a restorative principle in addition to the manifest and latent functions associated with it.
