Justice Fellowship Programme: Communities In Transition
Deadline: 14 September 2009
The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation is pleased to
announce the holding of a five-week Transitional Justice in Africa
Fellowship Programme-an intensive 5-week residential programme which
will be held in Cape Town from 4 October - 7 November 2009 and which
is reserved for Zimbabwean nationals presently residing in Zimbabwe.
The IJR has been hosting fellows from countries in political transition
was designed to attract and bring together scholars and practitioners
in the field of transitional justice to compare, reflect and write
on the activities they may have been engaged in, in their respective
countries. Each programme invites candidates from a specific country
within the ambit of the Institute's Africa-based programme,
namely Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique, Rwanda,
Sudan, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
A rigorous selection
process will ensure the targeting of professionals working with
affected communities in the field of transitional justice in Zimbabwe
and who are in positions to influence practice and policy. The programmes'
purpose is to enhance participants' skills and knowledge,
with a particular focus on issues related to community healing within
the ambit of transitional justice. Accordingly, the programme will
attempt to cover some of the central literature, themes, and mechanisms
and will supplement teachings with practical experiences such as
a community healing workshop, a trauma healing workshop, engagement
with local organisations working in related fields etc.
classes with local experts, dialogues with practitioners, daily
contact with IJR staff, self study and a close relationship with
a senior academic mentor, the programme aims to prepare participants
for challenges specific to democratic transitions by exposing them
to various transitional justice tools. A collaborative environment
will foster information exchange and dialogue among participants,
IJR staff and IJR partners while self study is encouraged for research
purposes. It is hoped that participants will deepen their familiarity
with the growing field of transitional justice theory and then apply
this theoretical framework to the practical challenges currently
facing their country. The programme will also include a strong research
component, with one of the outcomes being a research paper of publishable
quality. The IJR will cover all travel and accommodation costs for
the duration of the fellowship as well as a modest stipend.
