Event time is displayed in your time zone.

In most western legal systems, restorative justice and mediation function at the periphery of the legal system, but this has not been the case in post-genocide Rwanda, where they have had a central role in the reconstruction of the country from a failed state to that highest-ranked for foreign investment in Africa. This talk will discuss these processes and how their expansion through ongoing law reform contributes to a trauma-informed system of justice in Rwanda.

Lunch will be provided.
