Postgraduate Research Conference on human rights, transitional justice and peace building, Nov 7th

The Transitional Justice Institute (University of Ulster), the Centre for Post-Conflict Justice (Trinity College Dublin), and the Institute for Research in the Social Sciences (University of Ulster) invite proposals for a one-day postgraduate student research seminar to be held on Friday 7 November 2014.
This year’s event, on human rights, transitional justice and peace building, will encourage interdisciplinary exchange and networking around challenging questions which arise for societies emerging from conflict or dealing with the legacy of human rights abuses. Papers are invited from current PhD students, from any discipline, whose work relates strongly to the theme. Researchers wishing to be considered should submit an abstract of no more than 300 words, with their name, institution, discipline, year of study, and a 200 word biography by 31 August 2014, to Gwawr McGirr, email . Places are necessarily limited, so unfortunately not every paper may be able to be accepted. We anticipate that final acceptances will be notified by the end of September. Non-presenting participants will then be welcome to register to attend, subject only to limitations of space.

Friday 7 November 2014, 09.00-18.00
Venue: University of Ulster, York St campus (Belfast city centre)
