8th annual Beyond Juba Distinguished Memorial Lecture

On May 30th 2016 the Refugee Law Project successfully held its 8th  annual Beyond Juba Distinguished Memorial Lecture at Gulu District Council Hall under the theme: "Ten Years of Peace 2006-2016: Assessing the legacy of the Juba peace talks 2006-2008 and way forward".

Monsignor Matthew Odongo - Vicar-General of Gulu Diocese, delivered the guest lecture on behalf of His Grace Archbishop John Baptist Odama. The Gulu Municipality Member of Parliament, Hon. Lyandro Komakech, moderated the guest lecture, and you can view his reflection on the major outcomes of the Juba peace talks by watching a short clip at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibJniSFwKqo.
 

This Memorial Lecture is part of the 6th Institute for African Transitional Justice (IATJ) currently going on in Gulu (30th may - 3rd June 2016). The Refugee Law Project (RLP), School of Law, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda, in collaboration with the African Transitional Justice Research Network (ATJRN) is hosting the IATJ under the theme "_TOO LITTLE TOO LATE, OR TOO MUCH TOO SOON? THE TIME AND TIMING OF TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE_".

The Institute for African Transitional Justice (IATJ) is an annual week-long residential programme designed to convene practitioners, activists, academics and policy makers in a multi- and cross-disciplinary space in which to discuss some of the most pressing transitional justice issues of our time; with a deliberate focus on situating discussions in a range of African contexts, it seeks to expand the global transitional justice discourse to accommodate a range of culturally and historically informed conceptions of justice, and to catalyse the development of African Transitional Justice systems and mechanisms.
