The Minerva Center for Human Rights at Tel-Aviv University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is organizing an international conference on the ‘material turn’ in transitional justice processes.
The conference will take place on June 13-14, 2022. In light of the continued uncertainty regarding international travel due to COVID-19, the conference will be held in an online format.
This call for papers invites proposals for presentation of a paper at the conference.
Submission deadline: March 15, 2022.
There has been a renewed interest and increasing discussion in recent years regarding the material aspects of justice. Diverse grassroot movements, organizations and individuals are advocating to ensure material justice in addressing the subsistence needs of victims of armed conflicts; recognizing the continuing impacts of slavery and colonization; or in dealing with the destruction of the ecological environment and the climate crisis within the definition of crimes against humanity.
In the multidisciplinary field of Transitional Justice, material aspects have been marginalized until recently. The diverse practices, initiatives, and bodies of transitional justice aim to support processes of political transitions and facilitate the complex dealing with wide-ranging injustices. Nonetheless, as the field focused on atrocities and criminal prosecutions, material abuses and wrongdoings were sidelined. Material aspects of the transition processes – from material reparations, guarantees of non-recurrence and distributive reforms, through cultural restoration and restitution or the material aspects of testimony and remembrance, to the materiality of establishing civic solidarity, friendship or democratic trust – have also received a more limited attention.
