CHRGJ event explores "Economic Crimes, Corruption, and Transitional Justice" (AUDIO)

As part of its ongoing Transitional Justice series, CHRGJ welcomed Ruben Carranza, a senior associate at the International Center for Transitional Justice on February 24. In his talk, he addressed questions about the role of economic crimes and corruption in transitional justice mechanisms, arguing that, to date, transitional justice has largely compartmentalized legacies of abuse into those based on a narrow set of human rights violations and those based on economic crimes. He said that this is an inadequate way to address both sets of abuses and offered possible solutions for the field going forward.
