Victims of human rights violations are often left more vulnerable than they may have been even before they were harmed. In post-conflict and post-dictatorship settings, reparative justice strives to redress this situation by delivering material reparations to victims. Can redress be achieved? Does a justice process satisfy the needs and expectations of victims? Are there pitfalls to be avoided?

Ruben Carranza, Director of the Reparative Justice Program at the International Center for Transitional Justice, will speak about achievements and dilemma faced by reparative justice. Currently he is visiting Germany, following an invitation by FriEnt (Working Group on Peace and Development)

Time: Thursday, 13 February 2014, 18:00—19:30 hrs
