The Transitional Justice Institute (TJI) is pleased to announce its 5th annual Summer School on Transitional Justice on the theme of:
GENDER, CONFLICT AND UN SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION 1325
The Summer School will be held from 25-29 June 2012 at the Jordanstown campus of the University of Ulster, located on the north shore of Belfast Lough, Northern Ireland. The Summer School is a week-long residential course, consisting of a series of interactive lectures, workshops and roundtable discussions. It is aimed at both postgraduate students and practitioners working in the field of transitional justice and human rights.
This year the summer school will give a broad and comprehensive overview to the regulation of women’s rights and needs in conflict and post-conflict situations. Given the recent ten year anniversary of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, a particular focus of the summer school will be on the creation, enforcement, and capacity of UNSC 1325 and other related United Nations Security Council resolutions to addressed the needs, exclusions and rights of women in conflict and post-conflict settings.
The academic component of the summer school is also complemented by a social programme which provides the opportunity for participants to get to know a little about the local area. Social events include a tour of the North Coast, a visit to the Titanic Belfast attraction, a murals tour in Belfast, film screenings and a Summer School dinner at Belfast Castle.
