The challenge of dealing with the aftermath of violent conflict continues to trouble countries throughout the world. In responding to that challenge, the ever-expanding eld of transitional justice proposes a series of practical measures – including criminal prosecutions, truth commissions, reparations programmes and institutional reform – to potentially assist societies emerging from armed conflict.
The 2015 Antonio Cassese Summer School oers comprehensive, in-depth knowledge of the theoretical and practical application of these measures and practices. Based on both scholarly and practitioner expertise across a range of areas (including human rights, international criminal law, security reform, legal philosophy, gender politics) and country situations, the programme combines a general course on transitional justice with complementary topic-specic lectures. The general course will be delivered by leading transitional justice scholar Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, Professor of Law at the University of Minnesota Law School and at the University of Ulster’s Transitional Justice Institute in Belfast .
