Live Web Event: Seeking Justice in the Wake of War

Event Date: 
February 18, 2010 - 09:30

This live seminar will examine legal and policy issues arising in societies transitioning out of war. The seminar will address the following questions:
What mechanisms and strategies might contribute to ending impunity for wartime violations and promoting reconciliation in fragile societies?
How do traditional justice mechanisms and international criminal law approach accountability, and what are the benefits as well as the challenges of each framework?
Who should decide what course of action might be most suitable for a country transitioning out of war?
What role might humanitarian professionals play regarding attempts to balance values such as truth, justice, and reconciliation?

These questions will be examined by looking to societies that have recently transitioned -- or that are currently transitioning -- out of war.

Naz Modirzadeh, Senior Associate at the Program on Humanitarian Policy and Conflict Research at Harvard University, and Claude Bruderlein, Director of the Program, will host the discussion.

Panelists
Dr. Phil Clark, Oxford University
Laura Davis, International Center for Transitional Justice
Jasteena Dhillon, Harvard University
