Transitional Justice from Gender Perspective

Tuesday, December 7, 2021

On December 2, the webinar “Justice from a Gender Perspective” was held with guest speaker Professor Arancha Garcia del Soto as a means of discussing experiences of women and ethnic minorities that have gone through different forms of violence in their societies. The event was co-sponsored jointly by the Council on Latin American & Iberian Studies, European Studies Council, and the Program on Peace and Development. For the webinar, Del Soto, who has worked with victims of war and structural violence since 1993, prepared a presentation focused on three main “case studies” as a means of presenting the impact of gender roles on pre-established notions of patriarchal societies. The webinar was moderated by Professor Maria Jose Hierro from the Political Science department at Yale University.
