HUMRTS 107: Understanding the Impact of New Technologies on Human Rights Investigations and Transitional Justice

This course will offer students insights into the philosophical underpinnings of the field of transitional justice coupled with a practical lens through which to study different ways governments and human rights institutions pursue justice, broadly defined, in the wake of mass atrocities or systemic repression. Students will closely examine a number of jurisdictions contemplating or currently undergoing a transitional justice process such as Colombia, Syria, Burma/Myanmar, Tunisia, the Central African Republic, and Iraq with an eye towards understanding the changing nature of human rights investigations and prosecutions. In particular, we will consider how advances in technology have altered the possibilities for international criminal tribunals and justice mechanisms as well as the potential for innovative new mechanisms like the UN General Assembly-created International, Impartial, and Independent Mechanism for Syria (iiiM) to change the field of international justice. Students will contribute to an ongoing transitional justice process by way of a final project.nnThis is a required course for students participating in the BOSP faculty-initiated program overseas trip to Colombia. Enrollment preference for HUMRTS 107 will be given to students enrolled or waitlisted for participation in the corresponding OSPGEN summer trip to Colombia, however, students who cannot participate in the travel portion are welcome to take HUMRTS 107, as well.
