IATJ 8 - Call for Applications
The Refugee Law Project (RLP), School of Law, Makerere University, in collaboration with the African Transitional Justice Research Network (ATJRN), is now accepting applications to its 8th Institute for African Transitional Justice (IATJ) to be held from 3-7 September 2018, in Arua, West Nile Region.
Under the theme: ‘Doing Inclusive Gender in Transitional Justice: What might this look like in Post-conflict African Societies?’, the 8th IATJ will confront and explore global experiences in relation to making transitional justice more broadly both gender sensitive and inclusive. Additionally, IATJ VIII will reflect on possible ways of doing inclusive gender in TJ and its contribution to the larger goal of re-visioning gender towards more progressive norms.
The IATJ is an annual week-long residential programme designed to convene practitioners, activists, academics and policy makers in a multi- and cross-disciplinary space in which to discuss some of the most pressing transitional justice issues of our time; with a deliberate focus on situating discussions in a range of African contexts, it seeks to expand the global transitional justice discourse to accommodate a range of culturally and historically informed conceptions of justice, and to catalyze the development of African Transitional Justice systems and mechanisms.
