This project will be the creation, management, and administration of an International Law website called "Transitional-Justice." The website will function both as a networking forum for various Transitional Justice communities and institutions around the world, as well as a place for practitioners and scholars of Transitional Justice to come together. Work will include conducting original research, writing and editing articles for the website; overall maintenance of the website's substance; and networking with other institutions, schools, and scholars of Transitional Justice. Students will have the opportunity to work on all aspects of the project, including researching and writing articles of their own to be published on the website. Course goals include advancing students’ skills in editorial writing and international human rights and transitional justice research, and enabling students to get practical experience in editing, fact checking, and working in an ever changing environment regarding current events in international law, human rights, and transitional justice.
