Annual Justice Lecture

With Libya being labeled by many as a “failed state”, this inaugural lecture will explore what justice means in this context and how notions of transitional justice are useful in the non-typical scenarios we face today.

The aim of the event is to create an open and varied dialogue on justice and human rights and to promote greater understanding and engagement around these issues.
The 2019 lecture will be the first event in the partnership between Lawyers for Justice in Libyaand the Centre for Human Rights Law at SOAS, University of London to host an annual lecture through which different questions of justice will be discussed, within the Libyan context or with Libya as a case study.

The lecture will finish at 7.30 pm and will be followed by a small reception.

Please register on Eventbrite and note that the event will be treated on a first-come-first-served basis.
