Transitional Justice Fellowship Program
A Unique Fellowship Opportunity In The Heart Of The “City of Peace and Justice"29 Apr 2014
From Monday to Friday 23-27 June, The Rule of Law Program of The Hague Institute for Global Justice, in partnership with The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) based in South Africa, will be hosting and leading a one-week intensive and unique training program on transitional justice and the functioning of international courts and tribunals.
The Hague Institute is inviting five international fellows to participate in this week-long program and engage with the five to eight African fellows traveling from Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa, where the first part of the program, centered on transitional justice in Africa, starts on 8 June.
Among this year’s fellows from Africa will be expert scholars and practitioners from various countries with extensive experience working with affected communities in sub-Saharan Africa and developing initiatives in their home countries to advance transitional justice.
The Hague-based training will provide all fellows with opportunities for peer-to-peer exchange, meetings with court officials, study on the rule of law and transition justice as well as visits to Hague-based courts and related peace and justice institutions.
After completion of the program, the participants will have deepened their familiarity with the growing field of transitional justice theory and will be able to apply this theoretical framework to the practical challenges their country face.
The Hague Institute will provide drinks and lunches, as well as training materials, however travel to and from The Hague and accommodation costs will not be covered.
