ICTJ Course Examines the Place for Justice in Peace Negotiations: From Syria to Colombia and beyond, how do societies navigate the pursuit of justice in peace processes? That question animated ICTJ’s annual Intensive Course on Transitional Justice and Peace Processes, which this month gathered 31 participants from nearly 20 countries in Barcelona to discuss the place of justice in negotiations to end conflict.

Participants included grassroots activists, seasoned transitional justice professionals, and academics, each of whom brought their personal experience to lively discussions that stretched across the week-long course. These discussions were guided by our instructors, including ICTJ staff members Fernando Travesi, Executive Director;  Ruben Carranza, Director of the Reparative Justice Program;  and Howard Varney, Senior Program Advisor at ICTJ.

ICTJ staff were joined by additional experts who have been deeply involved in peace processes around the world. These practitioners spoke about their experiences from Afghanistan to Syria, unpacking these case studies through detailed discussions. Expert presenters included Hind Kabawat, Director of the Peacebuilding at the Centre for World Religions, Diplomacy, and Conflict Resolution and a member of the Syrian opposition’s High Negotiations Committee; Nicholas “Fink” Haysom, United Nations Secretary-General Special Envoy for Sudan and South Sudan; Asif R. Khan, Chief of the Mediation Support Unit, United Nations Department of Political Affairs; and Juanita Goebertus Estrada, Deputy Director, Institute for Integrated Transitions.
