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 both the fall and spring semesters, the Transitional Justice Program will be offering a series of seminars examining, in
depth, many of the issues our 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. Foundations
seminars consider ideas of transitional justice at the strategy level. Toolkit seminars consider practical case studies and lessons learned.
Seminars draw heavily on examples from transitional justice in Afghanistan.
