The Essex Transitional Justice Network is pleased to announce the details of its Summer School, which will take place at the University of Essex on 10 to 12 September 2012.
The theme of the Summer School will be Understanding the Economic and Social Dimensions of Transitional Justice. It will focus on normative issues that arise when the field of transitional justice is broadened to include economic and social dimensions; on how the mechanisms of transitional justice have dealt and/or could deal with these dimensions; and on selected areas where the connection becomes apparent, such as economic crimes; natural resources; economic, social and cultural rights and the accountability of economic non-state actors such as corporations. Given the importance of gender-specific issues, these will be addressed as a cross-cutting subject during the three days. The topical importance of the experience of the Arab Spring will be acknowledged by dedicating a special session to this particular issue.
Teaching on the Summer School programme will be provided by experts in transitional justice and in the different themes covered in the Summer School. The ETJN Summer School is designed for professionals in non-governmental organisations, national and international governmental organisations, public servants, researchers and students. Participants on the Summer School will be able to engage in collaborative analysis of case-study material.
Further details of the ETJN Summer School, including details of speakers, a provisional programme and a registration form are available on our website: www.esssex.ac.uk/tjn and are attached to this email. Please do forward this email to colleagues and contacts that you think may be interested in this event.
