Lecture on Transitional Justice

On Wednesday 22 June the Global Governance CoE organized an interactive lecture on Transitional Justice. During the event GG researcher Maarten van Munster and VU researchers Hossein Mojtahedi and Joris van Wijk engaged in a discussion on post-conflict Transitional Justice focusing on the case studies of Iraq and Angola.

The recent Transitional Justice initiatives in both countries were contextualized and compared, which led to a rich discussion focusing on the role of both national and international actors. In addition, possible future scenarios for dealing with the violent past of both countries were discussed.

The audience, which included many students, took ample opportunity to ask questions and actively participated in the discussion.
