Human Rights and Transitional Justice in Rosario

Transitional justice is an emerging field of law and inter-disciplinary academic study. Latin America has been at the forefront of the transitional justice movement since the early 1980s, and countries such as Argentina, Uruguay, and Peru continue to serve as models for other societies seeking a peaceful post-conflict transition. Similarly, Latin American countries and regional institutions have been pioneers in the development of culturally specific human rights laws, practices, and institutions. The promotion of human rights, from both an international and domestic perspective, provides the foundation for all transitional justice movements. Therefore, combining the study of human rights with transitional justice is necessary. Teaching human rights and transitional justice requires an interdisciplinary perspective that includes an emphasis on law, politics, history, and culture. Latin America, and South America in particular, is a perfect setting for studying these important topics.

The goal of the program is for students to build a general foundation in the fields of international human rights and transitional justice, supplemented by case study approaches to the Inter-American human rights system, human rights law, and various transitional justice mechanisms (e.g. trials and truth commissions) undertaken by Argentina and its neighbors.
