Conference: Jus Post Bellum and Transitional Justice

The Perelman Centre for Legal Philosophy at the Faculty of Law of the Université Libre de Bruxelles will host a conference on "Jus Post Bellum and Transitional Justice," October 21-22, 2010, in Brussels. The program is here. Here's the idea:
This conference will address Jus Post Bellum as a new legal phenomenon and as new legal practice. As a new legal phenomenon, the content and position of Jus Post Bellum in the larger framework of international (humanitarian) law will be discussed. International and national legal developments will be examined against this theoretical perspective. As a new legal practice, cases of transitional justice dealing with the past and the future will illustrate how Jus Post Bellum becomes operational.
