In this research, the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict is assessed within the framework of Transitional Justice, a field that deals with periods of major political change; transition from oppression and injustice to democracy and justice. An adjusted version of John Torpey’s model (2003) of transitional justice is proposed to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. The proposition highlights the importance of communicating history as a first step towards restoring justice. Using the public opinion of 48 Palestinians and Israelis, the malleability of the model has been evaluated and results showed that: 1. Torpey's Transitional Justice model is perceived to be effective in different chronological order for Palestinians and for Israelis. Moreover, 2. Points of agreement and dissent were highlighted, both, between the two groups and within each group separately. This pointed out the need for an in-group bridging and healing process as part of communicating history, prior to proceeding to the main process of Transitional Justice. This paper aims to shed light upon these two challenges in order to raise awareness of the difficulties that should not be ignored in order to engage thoughtfully in Transitional Justice.
