“Jus - Post - Bellum”: Mapping the normative foundations

May 31– June 1, 2012, The Peace Palace, The Hague, Netherlands
The project was proud to host its launch conference, “‘Jus - Post - Bellum’: Mapping the normative foundations”, May 31 – June 1, 2012. It was held at the Peace Palace. The first of several project seminars, this conference aimed to clarify the meaning and content of the concept (including, e.g., its relationship to and distinction from the field of transitional justice), including contemporary understandings and criticisms of the concept, and historical and modern approaches towards the definitions of key notions, such as “jus”, “post” and “bellum”.
The launch conference included five panels: Situating the Concept, Mapping the Normative Framework(s), the Politics and Practice of Jus Post Bellum, Temporal Dimensions of Jus Post Bellum, and The ‘Jus’ in ‘Jus Post Bellum.’ There was also a roundtable discussion on ‘At War’s End,’ by Larry May.
Our deep thanks to all participants.
