Welcome to this month’s CIC Salon, our partnership with the Saskatoon Club in which we provide a glimpse into current research in a more casual forum. An earlier time, no meal, no pressure, just gathering around the table to witness some cutting edge international research.
In this month’s salon, join us as Dr. Kirsten Fisher presents thoughts developed from her field research in Uganda this past summer as she explores “Justice and other post-conflict contemporary concerns in northern Uganda”. This amazing talk is of interest to many people, especially those who have an interest in post-conflict justice, child soldiers, Uganda, and the International Criminal Court.
About our speaker:
Dr. Kirsten J. Fisher is an Associate Professor in Political Studies at the University of Saskatchewan. Operating across traditional disciplines and subfields, she works on issues of global governance and human rights, international criminal law, politics and the International Criminal Court (ICC), justice after atrocity, and post-conflict social reconstruction, particularly in Africa.
She is the author of Transitional Justice for Child Soldiers (Palgrave 2013) and Moral Accountability and International Criminal Law (Routledge 2012), and is the co-editor/co-author of Transitional Justice and the Arab Spring (Routledge 2014). Her articles have appeared in journals including International Criminal Law Review, Contemporary Political Theory, Journal of Modern African Studies, Finnish Yearbook of International Law, and Journal of International Political Theory.
Much of her work is informed by field research conducted in northern Uganda, where communities are still grappling with how to achieve post-conflict and social justice in the aftermath of two decades of conflict and atrocity.
Prior to coming to the University of Saskatchewan, Dr. Fisher held research positions in the Department of Political Science at McGill University, the Centre of Excellence in Global Governance Research at the University of Helsinki, and the Human Rights Research and Education Centre at the University of Ottawa.
