Abstract:
The Centre for Transitional Justice and Post-Conflict Reconstruction is a collaborative, interdisciplinary centre that brings together experts from across the Western community whose teaching and research focus on issues including transitional justice, reconciliation, criminal accountability, post-colonial legacies, legal reconstruction, the environment, human rights, economic justice, healing circles, democratization, and more.  Through the IDI, the Centre builds on its already-strong established programmes by implementing three distinct interdisciplinary initiatives related to its work and mandate:  an undergraduate minor, a collaborative graduate programme, and a research project, which focuses on “Unpacking the Canadian Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission.”
