Essex Transitional Justice Network Film Series

The Essex Transitional Justice Network, in conjunction with the Department of Literature, Film, and Theatre Studies, has run a successful film series since 2009. Films relevant to Transitional Justice are shown in room LTB10 at the University of Essex once a month, at 7pm, and are free for students, staff and members of the public alike to attend. Each film is introduced by an academic or professional with experience of the film's subject matter, and a general Q & A session is held after the screening.

We also have a film library, and DVDs of films in the series are available to hire free of charge for students and staff associated with the Network or working in the field of transitional justice. Please contact us, or visit the general office in LiFTs, if you are interested in doing so.

    ETJN Panel Discussion 08 June 2016: "The Role of third Party Actors in Transitional Justice"

    Armed conflicts and/or repression are often connected to a broad range of human rights violations. The State has the duty to respect, protect and fulfil its citizens’ rights, including the prevention of third party interference with the enjoyment of these rights. To the extent that third party actors, such as corporations, contribute to human rights violations during conflict or repression, it needs to be addressed what role they can play in the transition to peace and/or democracy. Questions to be discussed by the panellists include why it is important to involve third party actors in transitional justice processes; and what kind of involvement, eg criminal prosecutions, truthfinding or reparation, is most appropriate.

    Panelists include Catalina Diaz, Camilo Sánchez, Charles P. Abrahams, Prof. Sabine Michalowski, Prof. Sheldon Leader and Dr. Clara Sandoval.

    Wednesday, 8 June 2016, 10:00-12:00, at EBS.2.65, Colchester Campus, University of Essex.
