Barcelona, Spain

Organized By : International Center for Transitional Justice

The International Center for Transitional Justice and the Barcelona International Peace Centre (BIPC) will offer an Intensive Course on Transitional Justice, Violent Conflict, and Sustainable Peace. 

This intensive course from ICTJ examines the entirety of the relationship between transitional justice, violent conflict, and sustainable peace. This includes the nature of justice claims and initiatives while conflict is ongoing, the dynamics of addressing past abuses during peace negotiations and processes, and the contributions of addressing the past to prevention and peacebuilding in the aftermath of war. The focus of the course allows for an exploration of the processes and objectives of transitional justice, the continued evolution of the field and its role in different contexts, and its strategic value as a policy tool in the sustainable peace and development agendas.

The aim is to provide course participants with a firm grounding in transitional justice efforts and insight into the challenges and opportunities of helping to avoid the recurrence of human rights violations, violence, violent conflict, and authoritarianism.

The course takes place from October 3-7, 2022 at Sant Felip Neri House in Barcelona, Spain. It will start at 9:00 AM CET on Monday and end around 3:30 PM CET on Friday.

The program is targeted at mid-career and senior staff at multilateral agencies, governments, NGOs, foundations, universities, as well as researchers and others directly involved in peacebuilding, conflict and post-conflict contexts around the world.

Applications will be accepted until Sunday, September 4, 2022.
