Dealing with Land Issues in Transitions
The Essex Transitional Justice Network held its Second Summer School at the University of Essex (Colchester campus) from 9 to 13 September 2013. The theme of this year’s Summer School was Dealing with Land Issues in Transitions.
The Summer School considered how to address land related issues in countries that engage in a process of transition from conflict or repression to lasting peace. In particular, it considered the connection between transitional justice and land related issues such as large-scale displacements or dispossession, through an analysis of existing experiences like South Africa, Colombia, Palestine, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo; and it identified challenges to an effective connection between transitional justice mechanisms, land issues, peacebuilding and development approaches.
Teaching on the Summer School programme was provided by leading international experts in transitional justice (practitioners and academics) and in the different themes covered. The ETJN Summer School is designed for professionals in non-governmental organisations, national and international governmental organisations, policy-makers, academics and students. Participants in the Summer School are given ample opportunity to engage in collaborative analysis.
