Host: Geneva Academy
Location: Villa Moynier (rue de Lausanne 120B)
Description: Should transitional justice address questions of poverty, systematic inequality and discrimination, or should it be limited to political and civil rights violations, such as enforced disappearances and torture? How can economic, social and cultural rights be implemented concretely in post-conflict or post-authoritarian contexts? What practical challenges are likely to arise?
The panelists will debate on these issues, discussing the challenges that may arise when the rights to food, health, housing, education or water are implemented in post-conflict or post-authoritarian situations.
