The Transitional Justice Institute (TJI) based at Ulster University is a world-leading law-led multidisciplinary research centre focusing on transitional justice – how societies deal with the transition from conflict or oppression-, human rights, international law, peace and conflict.
TJI is a partner on the Transformation and Empowermentresearch theme. The projects under the Transformation and Empowerment research theme focus on reconciliation and empowerment after conflict; the complex legacies and silences of transformative justice; improving gender equality and governance in unstable regime environments; and the contribution of culture to peacebuilding. Using legal, historical and conceptual work along with qualitative and survey data collection, the projects analyse justice concerns across periods of conflict and peace, with a particular emphasis on historical injustices, socio-economic rights deprivations and the vulnerability of marginalised groups to justice deficiencies.
