“Jus – Post – Bellum”: Mapping the normative foundations (May 31– June 1, 2012, The Peace Palace, The Hague, Netherlands)

The project is proud to host its launch conference, "‘Jus – Post – Bellum’: Mapping the normative foundations", May 31 – June 1, 2012. It will be held at the Peace Palace. The first of several project seminars, this conference will seek 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 will include 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 will also be a roundtable discussion on ‘At War’s End,’ by Larry May.

Conference speakers and participants include Freya Baetens, Rogier Bartels, Christine Bell, Eric de Brabandere, Robert Cryer, Jennifer Easterday, Mark Evans, Dieter Fleck, Gregory Fox, James Gallen, Terry Gill, Jens Iverson, Dov Jacobs, Jann Kleffner, Claus Kress, Randall Lesaffer, Larry May, Larry May, Jens Meierhenrich, Nneka Okechukwu, Inger Osterdahl, Cymie Payne, Yael Ronen, Aurel Sari, Matthew Saul, Carsten Stahn, Astri Suhrke, Ruti Teitel, Roxana Vatanparast, Martin Wahlisch, and Dominik Zaum.
