Centre for Post Conflict Justice
Together with colleagues from Law, the Irish School of Ecumenics and History, Sociology staff are founder members of the Centre for Post-Conflict Justice. The Centre 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. The Centre's activities link to longstanding research by Sociology staff on Israel/Palestine, Kosovo and the Good Friday Agreement.
