Transitional Justice, Memory and Culture

- , Geneva, Switzerland

What roles can culture as ‘memory work’ play in contexts of transitional justice? Do cultural initiatives such as public memorials, theatre performances, film screenings and photo exhibitions ‘work’ as avenues for coming to terms with the past and preventing future atrocities? What is the role of education and history in processes of social transformation? Is there a duty to preserve memory, and what is the potential contribution of archives in this respect? What are some of the practical challenges faced by memorialization efforts around the world? The Transitional Justice Spring School 2017 aims to address these complex questions through an interdisciplinary, comprehensively structured high-quality one-week programme featuring leading experts.
