Settling accounts: The role of businesses in conflict and post conflict societies
18 - 21 September 2014
Building on the strong expertise at Essex on transitional justice and corporate accountability, the Essex Transitional Justice Network, together with the Essex Business and Human Rights Project (EBHR), will be running its III Transitional Justice Summer School. The theme of this year’s Summer School will be 'Settling accounts: The role of businesses in conflict and post conflict societies'.
The summer school will consider the role of businesses in societies emerging from conflict and authoritarian rule, including different issues of corporate accountability that might arise in these contexts and mechanisms to address it. Experts in both corporate accountability and transitional justice will discuss specific topics such as project lending; debt and financial complicity, as well as litigation and advocacy strategies in relation to transitional justice.
Further details of the ETJN Summer School, including information on speakers (their short bios), a provisional programme and instructions on how to register are on the Transitional Justice Network website.
