APPLY NOW to a PYN regional webinar: Transitional justice: Key concepts and their place in post-conflict societies

  • by

The field of transitional justice emerged in the late 80s/early 90s in the contexts of south America and eastern Europe. The concept of transitional justice exists in human rights situations and is a response to widespread violations of human rights engaging in a robust set of mechanisms to prevent the recurrence of atrocities, ensure respect and promote peace, reconciliation and a democratic society.  

What makes transitional justice unique is the holistic approaches taken, particularly the focus on memorialisation, the right to truth and reparative/restorative justice. As more countries emerge from violence it is critical that we understand the importance of transitional justice, the key concepts and how we can engage with them.  

Join us in a webinar with Eve Jones to learn more about transitional justice and how it might aid in societal healing in the context of the Western Balkans.   

The webinar will be held via the Zoom platform on Thursday July 27, 2023, from 18:00 to 19:00h. 

Eve Jones is a recent graduate from Newcastle University (specialising in political memory) and intern at YIHR Croatia who will deliver the presentation and lead the further discussion.  

English will be used as the webinar’s working language. 

Prior registration is required.
