Research Conversation: Transitional Justice and the Arab Spring

16th December 2011, 12:30 to 14:30, Seminar Room, IAS, Cosin's Hall, Palace Green

Durham Global Security Institute's Research Support Capacities

Durham Global Security Institute (DGSi) invites you to a research conversation to discuss its research support capacities, both in relation to research into ‘Transitional Justice and the Arab Spring' and other topics. DGSi is keen to support research across all three faculties where it intersects with its own research foci. Our aim is to co-ordinate an exceptionally high quality, interdisciplinary, large research grant application in 2012.

To get the conversation started we have chosen one major issue of 2011, the ‘Arab Spring', and a particular theoretical lens: transitional justice. The latter has major interdisciplinary potential on memorialisation, history, post-colonialism, literature and language, as well as law, international relations, and the difficult business of economic and infrastructure recovery. It is therefore particularly well suited to be studied in a university context, whilst also demonstrating great potential for impact.

To reserve a place at the research conversation, please email Dr James Sweeney, the DGSi research co-ordinator:
