PO 350 - State Violence and Justice

Halting genocide, torture, and the violation of human rights is the first step. This course examines the next: how does a society address violence perpetrated by state officials, and how do they bring the perpetrators to justice? Understanding this process begins with an understanding of state violence, its goals and its effects on the victims, and proceeds with an examination of what is meant by truth, memory, and justice.
