2013 Symposium: Dialogues of Transitional Justice
The Quinnipiac Law Review hosted its annual symposium, "Dialogues of Transitional Justice," on Nov. 2, 2013. The event was co-sponsored by Quinnipiac's Albert Schweitzer Institute and the Center on Dispute Resolution.
The symposium is structured to facilitate a rich dialogue amongst presenters, panel members, practitioners, students, and other symposium attendees on the compelling topic of transitional justice.
Transitional justice refers to the set of judicial and non-judicial measures that have been implemented by different countries to redress the legacies of massive human rights abuses, according to The International Center for Transitional Justice. These measures include criminal prosecutions, truth commissions, reparations programs and various kinds of institutional reforms.
