The International Center for Transitional Justice and the Barcelona International Peace Centre (BIPC) will offer an Intensive Course on Transitional Justice, Violent Conflict, and Sustainable Peace. 

This intensive course from ICTJ examines the entirety of the relationship between transitional justice, violent conflict, and sustainable peace. This includes the nature of justice claims and initiatives while conflict is ongoing, the dynamics of addressing past abuses during peace negotiations and processes, and the contributions of addressing the past to prevention and peacebuilding in the aftermath of war. The focus of the course allows for an exploration of the processes and objectives of transitional justice, the continued evolution of the field and its role in different contexts, and its strategic value as a policy tool in the sustainable peace and development agendas.

The aim is to provide course participants with a firm grounding in transitional justice efforts and insight into the challenges and opportunities of helping to avoid the recurrence of human rights violations, violence, violent conflict, and authoritarianism.

The course takes place from October 3-7, 2022 at Sant Felip Neri House in Barcelona, Spain. It will start at 9:00 AM CET on Monday and end around 3:30 PM CET on Friday.

The program is targeted at mid-career and senior staff at multilateral agencies, governments, NGOs, foundations, universities, as well as researchers and others directly involved in peacebuilding, conflict and post-conflict contexts around the world.

Applications will be accepted until Sunday, September 4, 2022.

Throughout the war in Syria, schools have come under repeated attack from both government and rebel forces. On 22 March 2018, Syrian victims and activists will gather in Geneva for a public hearing-style event examining the impact of the destruction of schools in the context of the Syrian conflict. The event will be hosted by the International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) and the ten Syrian organizations that together comprise the Save Syrian Schools project.

The victim testimonies will be accompanied by a “Panel of Conscience”, which will be present on stage to listen to the stories of victims, lend authority and legitimacy to the recommendations issued, and provide symbolic support for all victims of the conflict. The panel will include Navi Pillay, former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights; Pablo De Greiff, UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence; and David Tolbert, President of the ICTJ.
