Instruments of Justice

When faced with the aftermath of mass violence or gross violations of human rights, some turn to the law in the pursuit of justice. And although there is a place and time for legal instruments, when used at the wrong time and for the wrong context they can be seen as blunt tools for addressing deeply political issues.

Panelists will reflect on case studies in relation to various legal, socio-economic, political tools, and will also consider other justice tools ranging from religious cosmologies to the arts and narrative.
