The Program on Transitional Justice examines the challenges of countries attempting to regain balance and redress legacies of massive human rights violations. It encompasses issues of legitimacy, criminal prosecutions, truth commissions, reparations, and various kinds of institutional reform necessary to protect vulnerable segments of a society and insure stability.
Throughout the 2013-14 academic year, the Transitional Justice Program will continue to offer its popular series of in-depth seminars (often referred to as a study group, here at the Kennedy School) examining, in depth, many of the issues the program is exploring. As noted above, these include the challenges countries face in attempting to regain balance and redress legacies of massive human rights violations. The seminars are presented from a practitioner perspective. While the specifics of the upcoming seminars are still being worked out, much infomation, including speakers and topics, is already available.
