Public discussion «Transitional Justice in Ukraine: What Might it Look Like?»

17March 2020

17 March 2020 from 9:30am to 1:00pm in Chatham House (10 St James’s Square | London | SW1Y 4LE) will be hosting a public event on «Transitional Justice in Ukraine: What Might it Look Like?»

Still grappling with the war in the east and the occupation of Crimea, Ukraine’s new leadership has announced its intention to develop its transitional justice infrastructure to respond to the human rights violations arising from Russia’s aggression.

Numerous reports (not least ones by the UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine) list persecutions, illegal detentions, enforced disappearances, torture and killings among the crimes perpetrated in Crimea and parts of occupied Donbas.

As Ukraine has only just started developing its transitional justice roadmap, this event will seek to discuss viable initial approaches, such as a ‘truth-telling commission’ or amnesties.

The panellists will also discuss the role for civil society and those directly affected by hostilities in the transitional justice process.
