This panel will discuss the findings from the three-year collaborative research project, the Impact of transitional justice measures on democratic institution-building supported by the Economic and Social Research Council and the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research. The project started in January 2013 and ends in December 2015 and focuses on countries facing a myriad of challenges following their emergence from authoritarian rule and/or violent conflict. This is a comparative, qualitative project examining the effects - positive, negative, and nil - of several transitional justice measures upon key elements of democratic institution-building in eight countries on four continents.
All Welcome. This event is co-sponsored by the Centre on Human Rights in Conflict.
