Gender and Transitional Justice: Challenges from the Field
Kelli Muddell, Director of the Gender Justice Program at the International Center for Transitional Justice, will discuss trends in the field of transitional justice especially with respect to gender-based impacts of violations committed during conflict and under authoritarian regimes as well as how these impacts are addressed post-conflict. Drawing on examples from Nepal, Tunisia, and Sri Lanka, she will also discuss the importance of change in the field of transitional justice in order to better understand the structural inequalities that underlie the way in which gender plays out during conflict to ultimately ensure the non-recurrence of gendered human rights in post-conflict societies. This is part of the Human Rights in Practice series, which is co-sponsored by the International Human Rights Clinic, and Center for International and Comparative Law. Lunch will be provided.
