Organized By : International Center for Transitional Justice

As the idea of prevention has been prioritized by the international community, understanding the role of transitional justice has become more imperative.

The course will look at practical examples of current, past, and paradigmatic transitional justice processes and their contribution to prevention. Country experiences to be discussed may include Colombia, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Peru, South Africa, Syria, Central African Republic, Morocco, and the Philippines. 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 violations, violence, and violent conflict.
