Transitional/Global Justice Network
This Project involves the management and administration of The Transitional Justice Network along with other research and writing activities to further the goals of the Network. This includes promoting global discourse among students, scholars, and professionals on issues of global justice. A place for discussion, where students can learn about issues in the field, scholars can link with other scholars working in similar areas, and professionals can keep up to date with trending thoughts and philosophies. The website functions 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 includes 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 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; as well as offering commentary and feedback on scholarly presentations. There are frequent opportunities to interface with students, practitioners and academics working on production of knowledge in these areas. 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 writing, editing, fact checking, and networking in an ever changing environment regarding current events in international law, human rights, and transitional justice. Students with international experience or background and foreign language skills are highly encouraged to enroll. Applicants should submit a résumé and statement of interest. Maximum number of students: 8. This course is open to day and evening students.
