We are professionalizing “Post-Conflict” transitions.
Transitioning a society from conflict to stability is the hardest single task facing our field. Where others have failed, our graduates will succeed.
At the 2016 The Hague Symposium, in cooperation with Clingendael Institute, you will grapple with the “wicked questions” around post-conflict transitions and international justice that continue to challenge policymakers, scholars, and practitioners. You will gain a deep understanding of the concepts, controversies, and institutions surrounding the implementation of post-conflict strategies, including security, justice, political, and social mechanisms. You will examine which elements have contributed to success and which to failure, as well as gain a thorough understanding of the interplay between dynamics that can and cannot be controlled. By learning about available mechanisms, options, and theories, you will gain a cross-sectoral perspective and a new way of thinking about transitions.
All participants will receive a Post-Graduate Certificate in “Post-Conflict Transitions & International Justice” upon completion of the course. Participants who choose to undertake additional rigorous assignments will have the opportunity to earn a Post-Graduate Certificate in “Post-Conflict Transitions & International Justice with Distinction.”
