The recently emerged field of transitional justice strives to develop new frameworks of reference for understanding fundamental socio-political change in societies emerging from periods of violence and oppression. The Cambridge Transitional Justice Research Network (CTJRN) is an informal association of Cambridge-based scholars interested in transitional justice. Members hail from a variety of disciplines and sub-disciplines including law, political science, international relations, sociology, philosophy and social anthropology.
The network welcomes as members, speakers and associates, scholars interested in the broad questions of how states and communities (with or without the involvement of international agents and institutions), do – and should – respond to periods in their (often immediate) history characterised by mass victimisation, violent conflict, and political oppression.
Please contact the group’s convenor Dr Antje du Bois-Pedain if you want to become involved.
