Post-Conflict Justice and State Building

Video and Photos


Countries emerging from armed conflict face important challenges: re-­establishing the rule of law, achieving conflict mitigation and prevention, integrating traumatic events, inscribing and negotiating memories, as well as strengthening reconciliation, nation-­building and identity. While many of the measures traditionally applied in the context of post-­authoritarian regimes constitute today important guidelines, contemporary post-conflict settings seem to require a fine-­tuned, targeted and sensitive approach, embracing political, security, transitional justice-­related and social factors, likely to support, in the longer run, peace as well as equitable political, economic and social order.

It is against this background that this Summer School examines the question of state building and transitional justice in the context of contemporary post­-conflict situations (view programme).
