- Post-Conflict Justice and Reconciliation Processes
|Coordinator(s)||To be advised|
This unit critically explores processes of reconciliation and justice associated with post-conflict situations. It evaluates the role that truth commissions, war crimes tribunals and informal justice mechanisms play in the transition from conflict to peace. It discusses the experiences of a number of countries which followed their own paths in the hope of finding a stable peace, including South Africa and Rwanda. It also examines processes of reconciliation amongst deeply divided societies. It evaluates the effectiveness of a variety of reconciliation mechanisms in situations such as the Asia-Pacific, Australia and Northern Ireland. Students are asked to critically analyse these historical processes and discuss and develop possibilities for application in contemporary conflicts.
