Transitional Justice: A brick in the wall or a drop in the bucket?

Tuesday 12th May 2009

5.30-7.30pm in the Yelland Theatre

Presented by Robin A Vincent, CMG, CBE

The lecture will cover human rights and education issues Robin Vincent confronted when entering war-stricken Sierra Leone. The lecture will go on to discuss the war crimes the Special Court was set up to address, in particular focusing on the infringements of human rights. Robin will also discuss the importance of building acceptance within the traumatised communities through the National Curriculum, and education within the local schools.
