Description
The objective of this Course is to introduce students to transitional justice and post conflict accountability redress mechanisms. The notion of transitional justice comprises the full range of processes and mechanisms associated with a society s attempt to come to term with a legacy of large-scale human rights abuses in order to ensure accountability and serve justice. TJ measures include criminal prosecutions, truth commissions, reparation programmes and various kinds of institutional reforms that will be addressed throughout the Course (primarily dealing with economic violence that occurred during transition and conflicts).

The economic, social and legal problems confronting societies in transition and after conflicts have attracted great attention in recent decades, especially since the unification of Germany, collapse of communistic states, war in former Yugoslavia, formation of South Africa s Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Arab spring. This course will give insight into transitional justice concepts primarily concerned with economic violence. Therefore, the Course will provide the holistic approach to transitional justice. Holistic approach includes addressing all human rights violations in transitional and post conflict societies. The specific problem in apply transitional justice mechanisms presents addressing economic crimes and violations of economic, social and cultural rights (economic violence). After the Course, students will be able to think, analyze and write critically about the transitional justice mechanism in general. In depth knowledge will be acquired in addressing economic violence in international criminal and transitional justice discourse (e.g. UN business and human rights agenda).
