- Post-Conflict Justice and Reconciliation Processes
|Coordinator(s)||Johanna Garnett (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
This unit critically explores processes of reconciliation and justice associated with post-conflict situations. It examines legal and political mechanisms established to call to account the perpetrators of atrocities and human rights violations committed during conflict. It evaluates the role that war crimes tribunals, truth commissions and informal justice mechanisms play in the transition from conflict to peace. Case studies from South Africa, Rwanda, Timor Leste and Yugoslavia are included. It also examines processes of reconciliation amongst deeply divided societies. It evaluates the effectiveness of reconciliation mechanisms in situations such as Australia, Mozambique, the Solomon Islands and Northern Ireland.
