The Global Campus Conference 2017 – ”Liquid reconciliation: Global perspectives, Glocal realities” (Sarajevo, April 4-6) is focused on the nexus between human rights protection and the perspective of reconciliation in divided societies. The conditions under which reconciliation and the defense of human rights are treated depend on a variety of aspects, according to the historical events and the individual tragedies experienced in each country/region. Therefore, the comparative approach is the mark for each proposed panel of the conference. The key concepts the conference will tackle are memory, justice and the role of the truth and reconciliation commissions, dealing with the past as well as empathy, forgiveness and the social cleavages.

The conference takes place within the framework of the Global Campus of Master’s Programmes and Diplomas in Human Rights and Democratisation, coordinated by the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation and is organised by the University of Sarajevo, with the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies, and the University of Bologna, with the Institute for Central-Eastern and Balkan Europe, through their joint activity ‘’European Regional Master’s Programme in Democracy and Human Rights in South East Europe (ERMA)’’.

The conference is realized thanks to the European Union and the Ministry of under the auspices of the Ministry for Human Rights and Refugees of Bosnia and Herzegovina
