Within the horizon of reflection on the relations taking place between Justice and memory, that permitted the awakening of a new humanitarian conscience in the aftermath of the Second World War, the main purpose of this course is to show the most significant processes and decisions of the so called transitional justice as the privileged object of the battles waged in memory. The objective is to provide the students with criteria for analysis and historical examples, enhancing their understanding on the role of justice in the construction processes of collective memory.
