In the second semester students have the opportunity to go on a study trip to learn about leading institutions and organizations active in the field of transitional justice.
In the 2016–2017 academic year students travelled to Nuremberg, Germany, symbolic of dealing with Germany’s Nazi past. During the trip students were able to visit the famous Courtroom 600 where the Nuremberg trials took place in 1945, as well as other sites of memorialization and museums.
More focused attention is needed today to meet the challenges of transitional justice. Critical normative and practical thinking is required to properly grasp and address what is at stake in societies emerging from conflict and authoritarian rule.
