Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with the issue of transitional justice in selected East-Central European countries. The relation between the mode of democratic transition and the means and pace of transitional judicial processes is discussed. Main attention is paid to the analysis and comparison of transitional justice issues in three Central European countries – the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovakia. The authors come to the conclusion that the mode of democratic transition is not as important as other political factors such as the presence or absence of leftist parties in government.
