The Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations (CTPSR) at Coventry University is pleased to announce their forthcoming academic conference ‘Contesting Transitional Justice: Radical Perspectives’. This one-day conference will bring together academics, doctoral students, practitioners and policymakers from across disciplines to engage with contemporary contestations on transitional justice in order to contribute to the ever-growing scholarship in this field.
The keynote speaker will be Professor Chandra Lekha Sriram with her presentation ‘Beyond transitional justice: the challenges of using law to promote peace and justice’
Professor Sriram is Professor of International Law and International Relations and Director of the Centre on Human Rights in Conflict at the University of East London. Her recent work has included a three-year project on the ‘Impact of Transitional Justice Measures on Democratic Institution Building (www.tjdi.org), in collaboration with Dr Anja Mihr at the University of Utrecht. She has authored three books, edited or co-edited 11 books or special journal issues, and published over 100 articles and essays in the field of post-atrocity justice, conflict resolution and peacebuilding
