Global Issues Colloquium Continues Feb. 25

The next event in the Center for Teaching and Learning’s Global Issues Colloquium will take place at 7 p.m. Feb. 25 in Magruder Hall 2001.

Sylvia Macauley, associate professor of history, will present “No Justice, No Peace: the Elusive Search for Justice and Reconciliation in Post-Conflict Sierra Leone.”

Macauley will examine and assess the wisdom behind the government of Sierra Leone’s establishment of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) in 2000 and the Special Court in 2002 to help end the fighting and consolidate the peace after years of civil war.

Macauley will also discuss the efficacy of these two mechanisms of transitional justice in the context of past and present realities in Sierra Leone.
