Welcome to the Centre for Post-Conflict Justice
The Centre for Post-Conflict Justice at Trinity College Dublin fosters interdisciplinary research that explores how societies come to terms with episodes of extreme violence in war, civil war, and periods of prolonged civil and political unrest. The Centre brings together faculty and graduate students working in the fields of history, law, peace studies, sociology, theology and ethics. Its current projects address the themes of Justice, Transition, Governance and Memory and Reconciliation and draw from field and archival work in the Balkans, Eastern and Central Europe, Central America, Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia, as well as the experience of the Peace Process in Ireland, North and South. Researchers also are actively engaged with international post-conflict policy communities.
