The 6th International Peace and Co-existence Seminar
Topic: Archives for Transitional Justice: Opportunities and Challenges
Speaker: Ulrike Lühe (Researcher and Program Officer, Dealing with the Past Program, Swisspeace)
Date and Time: Thursday, 17 June / 4:20pm-5:50pm (JST)
Venue：Online with Microsoft Teams
This seminar explains the conceptual foundations of transitional justice, focusing on archives and their role in transitional justice processes. Drawing from examples in Africa and Europe, the seminar asks what can archives contribute to transitional justice, but also how might they hinder or shape (the nature of) transitional justice.
Ulrike Lüke recently concluded her Ph.D. as part of the three-year project "Knowledge for Peace, Understanding Research, Policy, and Practice Synergies" and focused on the practice of expertise in international relations as shown in the development of the African Union's Transitional Justice Policy. She holds BAs in African Studies and Political Science from the University of Leipzig, Germany, and an MPhil in Justice and Transformation from the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
