Museums as Platforms for Transitional Justice: An EdComversation with Dina Bailey, Ereshnee Naidu and Sarah Pharaon
For the last three years, the Global Initiative for Justice, Truth, and Reconciliation (GIJTR) – a flagship program of the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience – has promoted just and sustainable peace in countries in transition through truth-telling, community reconciliation, and memorialization. By sharing ground-breaking models, emphasizing peer learning, and placing local communities at the center of their projects, GIJTR has built a transitional justice community of local populations, practitioners and policymakers. Join Sites of Conscience staff in exploring how U.S. museums can play a vital role in promoting cultures of justice by examining approaches used by organizations around the world.
