In collaboration with the Transitional Justice Institute (Ulster) and the Centre for Post-Conflict Justice (TCD), the Institute for Research in Social Sciences hosted the Postgraduate Research Student Conference on 'Human Rights, Transitional Justice and Peace Building'.
Attended by over 40 post-graduate researchers from across the UK, Ireland and Europe, participants were treated to three sessions that dealt with 'grass-roots peacebuilding', 'minority identities and transitional justice', and 'justice denied'.
Showcasing the scope and diversity of scholarship being conducted, the conflicts in Colombia, South Africa, Kosovo, Peru, and Northern Ireland were examined throughout the day.
The stimulating sessions were concluded with the première screening of 'A Land Between'.
The day went off without a hitch, courtesy of the post-graduate conference organising committee which included doctoral students from Ulster University, Queens University Belfast and Trinity College Dublin.
A special thanks also goes to the Social Science Research Graduate School for sponsoring the lunch and refreshments.
