About the Program:

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.

 

Transitional Justice Working Group continues for 2014-15:

Throughout the 2014-15 academic year, the Transitional Justice Program will offer  in-depth seminars 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. These seminars are not open -- please contact Professor Kathryn Sikkink to get involved.
