Memorialization as Truth-Telling: Lessons from the Global Initiative for Justice, Truth and Reconciliation

The Transitional Justice Institute (TJI) and INCORE, in partnership with Healing Through Remembering and the John Hume and Thomas P. O'Neill Chair in Peace, invite you to the online seminar series "Dealing with the Past in Northern Ireland"

This seminar will discuss the opportunities, challenges and best practices for local-level memorialization efforts to serve as truth-telling initiatives in the absence of formal truth commissions, using practical examples and case studies from the Global Initiative for Justice, Truth and Reconciliation (GIJTR), a consortium of nine partners led by the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience.

Lessons will be drawn from the GIJTR's programming in Colombia, Sri Lanka, South Sudan, The Gambia, and other conflict and post-conflict contexts to explore how community-driven truth-telling initiatives can help ensure that all members of society, particularly marginalized groups such as women and minorities, are able to share their stories and contribute to sustainable peace.

Presenter: Sara Bradshaw, Program Director for Transitional Justice at the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC). Sara supports organizations and activists in using memory and memorialization-based tools to engage communities in coming to terms with the past and building futures based on justice and non-repetition.

At ICSC she has worked on projects in Sri Lanka, South Sudan, Guinea, Cambodia and other countries and has provided technical support for over 70 community-based transitional justice initiatives.

RSVP essential to receive the live stream link which will be sent 48 hours before the seminar.
