How can societies build lasting peace when they emerge from violent internal conflicts facing widespread trauma and loss of life, a disintegration of the social fabric, weakened state institutions, and broken economic structures? From Syria to Guatemala, countries around the world wrestle with this question.

The conference brings together leading authorities from around the world to analyze which processes of transitional justice, forms of reconciliation and memory and conditions for economic and social policies increase the effectiveness of peace building and reconstruction in post-conflict environment.

 This is two-day conference, and continues on March 1 from 8:30am-4pm, also in Gamble Auditorium.
