The Centre for Transitional Justice and Post-Conflict Reconstruction is one of the six governing research centres that encompass the Network for Economic and Social Trends (NEST), which brings together he research centres in the Faculty of Social Science.

The Centre for Transitional Justice and Post-Conflict Reconstruction was established in late 2009. It brings together experts from across the Western community whose teaching and research focuses on issues including reconciliation, criminal accountability, post-colonial legacies, legal reconstruction, the environment, human rights, economic justice, healing circles, democratization, and more.

Our aim is to be a world-wide centre of excellence in scholarship on transitional justice and post-conflict reconstruction through collaborative, interdisciplinary and international research amongst faculty, undergraduate, graduate, and professional students and postdoctoral fellows.

We hope that you will join us as we consider these issues and more.
