Core courses are mandatory and are spread over the two semesters. They are structured in six modules that cover central theoretical and practical issues in the fields of transitional justice, human rights and the rule of law.
Module 1 – Legal, Ethical and Conceptual Frameworks / Module 2 – Human Rights and the Rule of Law in Transitional Contexts / Module 3 – Institutional Reform, Rule of Law and Constitution-Making / Module 4 – Social Transformation and Transitional Justice / Module 5 – Criminal Justice / Module 6 – Transitional Justice in Practice
This course combines in-depth case studies on transitional justice and lectures by transitional justice practitioners. It aims to deepen students’ knowledge of transitional justice challenges and provide them with the practical tools for ‘applied transitional justice work’. The course includes case simulations where students are asked to analyse and discuss specific country situations from the perspective of different roles.
