A Summer School entitled Gendering Practices of Post-Conflict Resolution: Investigation, Reparations and Communal Repair took place on June 22-26 hosted by the TJI in Belfast, and supported by the PSRP as part of its capacity building mission. The Summer School brought together practitioners, academics, and policy makers from around the globe to address issues of reparation in the context of conflict, and complex peace and political settlements. Speakers included Max Marcus (Gender Consultant and former ICTY Prosecutor), Professor Louise Chappell (UNSW), Professor Andrea Durbach (UNSW), and Professor Ruth Rubio-Marin (EUI). Participants came from NGO’s and international organisations, many working at the sharp edge of gendered engagement with complex political processes. Participants got to meet with a range of local organisations working on human rights and gender issues. A highlight of the week was engagement and training with the DFiD supported TJI Bridge of Hope partnership. See one participant’s blog on her experience.
