Mohamad Fofanah, a Sierra Leonian human rights lawyer, will talk about his experiences with transitional justice following the brutal civil war in Sierra Leone. Expanding beyond the traditional transitional justice mechanisms of court proceedings and truth and reconciliation commissions, Fofanah will discuss other methods Sierra Leone has used in the post-conflict years, including the work of the Anti-Corruption Commission in addressing graft and entrenched corruption (economic justice), which were themselves the root causes of Sierra Leone's savage conflict, as well as efforts to promote child rights issues as a measure of laying the basis for generational reform and conflict prevention. Sponsored by the International Human Rights Law Society. For more information, contact Amanda McRae at firstname.lastname@example.org.
