Transitional Justice in Europe After Armed Conflict

Date/Time: 21 June 2022, 13:30-14:30
Venue: HF Library UiB and Zoom

The decades after the bloody fights and the atrocities committed during World War II were a time of peace in Europe. Countries that fought each other during the war have over time become close allies.

What differs in these cases from other countries where after the end of a war violent clashes between the country’s citizens continue to erupt? And what can be learned from the cases where Transitional Justice lead to a peaceful time after a bloody war?
Having a closer look at Germany after World War II and the former Yugoslavia after the wars in the 1990s as case studies this panel discussion will try to find answers to all these questions.

Panel discussion with Prof. Dr. Annette Weinke (University of Jena, Germany) and Anna Gopsill (University of London, CMI). Moderator: Dorothee Alberts (LawTransform).

This event is part of the Transitional Justice in Norway and Beyond seminar series.
