Event: “The more things change, the more they stay the same?” Socioeconomic rights in times of transition

TJI Conference 30th April 2015, Ulster Hall, Belfast 9.30 a.m. – 5.00 p.m.

This international conference will examine the conceptual basis for the inclusion of socio-economic rights in transitional justice mechanisms and explore examples of how this has been done using national examples. It will consider the prospects for the future of inclusion of socio-economic issues in post-conflict settings, in particular the liability of corporations for economic and social rights violations and the proposed transformative model of transitional justice.

Speakers include: Les Allamby (NIHRC), Clara Sandoval (Essex), Karol Balfe (Christian Aid), Lars Waldorf (York),  Catherine Woollard (Independent Diplomat), Kate Ward (PPR), Vinodh Jaichand (Witwatersrand), Aoife nolan (Nottingham), Sabine Michalowski (Essex) and Paul Gready (York).
