General information

This Summer School on Transitional Justice brings together young researchers from around the world whose PhD-work tackles the difficult problem of how past injustice and mass crimes are being addressed during societal transitions. The school is organised by an international research consortium and it promotes multi-disciplinary perspectives on transitional justice, collective memory, dealing with the past and conflict management. It combines lectures given by internationally renowned experts with mentoring activities, writing workshops and project work.


You can stay at the Youth Hostel of Lausanne Jeunotel, situated near the shore of the Lake, where rooms have been pre-booked for you at a special rate, starting at CHF 46.00 per night. Please follow this link for more information.
