The purpose of the minor is to familiarize students with the emerging debates surrounding transitional justice and post-conflict reconstruction, and to allow for real-world application of theoretical constructs and explanations relating to development, democracy, the environment, the economy, human rights, politics, peace agreeements and justice before, at the time of, and post-transition. The minor requires students to take two new integrative courses designed to bring all of our students into a single classroom, based around themes central to the field, as well as other courses offered by departments and programs across campus.
