*Note Venue*

As part of their processes of political transition, both Rwanda and Burundi have been confronted with the challenge of transitional justice: How to come to terms with a past marked by human rights atrocities. Despite a number of apparent similarities, both countries have adopted remarkably different approaches in dealing with their respective pasts. In this seminar, objectives, instruments, actors, dynamics and political (ab)uses of the transitional justice policies and mechanisms employed in these countries will be explored and compared.

Late change: Dr Vanderginste has had to cancel his trip, but the seminar will go ahead with a focus on Rwanda
