Register for this webinar on transitional justice through this link: What view does a transitional justice lens bring into focus during a pandemic? What lessons can we draw from the history of pandemics – specifically on the link between deep structural inequalities, gross failure of governance, the rise of populist rightwing leaders and predatory States, and environmental mismanagement? Through transitional justice, as political and socio-economic drivers of violence are unpacked in the context of increasing authoritarianism, what ways forward can be discerned? Given that, by definition, transitional justice deals with a society’s violent past, is it possible to invoke the transitional justice framework in matters of continuing or ongoing injustice – specifically in preventing atrocities in the ongoing pandemic response, and exacting accountability as they are committed? What are the narratives and memories of violation, pain, and loss that we can unravel to foreground the right to truth, justice, reparation, and guarantee of non-recurrence? The Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect-Philippine Office (APRtoP-PO) based at the Ateneo de Manila University Department of Political Science and Of Mournings and the After (OMTA) of the Areté Sandbox Residency Program, in cooperation with the Commission on Human Rights (CHR), bring together thought provocateurs who would walk us through the relevance of transitional justice in the time of COVID-19.
