Understanding Mechanism and Strategies to Deal with the Past in Times of Transition
Questions of how to deal with past human rights abuses, conflict, mass atrocity, and authoritarian rule are of continued relevance in the context of a wide range of societies in transition, whether from conflict to peace, or transitions from authoritarianism. This interactive lecture will provide participants with an introduction to the practice of transitional justice and will introduce students to transitional justice dilemmas through an exploration of a number of geographically diverse case studies. The presentation will also introduce participants to a wide range of transitional justice mechanisms such as criminal trials and truth commissions. Topics explored will also include transitional justice and the politics of memory, reconciliation, and peacebuilding.
