The Summer School will be held from 17-21 June 2013 at the Jordanstown campus of the University of Ulster, located on the north shore of Belfast Lough, Northern Ireland. The Summer School is a week-long residential course, consisting of a series of interactive lectures, workshops and roundtable discussions.  It is aimed at both postgraduate students and practitioners working in the field of transitional justice and human rights.

The TJI Summer School 2013 will focus on the identification, training and presence of women and gendered perspectives in peace negotiations, peace mediation and ongoing post-conflict implementation.  This five day course will offer participants a unique opportunity to understand the legal framing and policy requirements mandating greater inclusiveness in peace processes and mediations of conflict; the arguments for the representation of women in such processes and the barriers to representation of women; the challenges to including gendered perspectives in negotiation, including greater understanding of men’s roles in conflict; the capacity of positive masculinities to model change in conflict settings; as well as identifying the issues and mechanisms that most likely advance women and gender equality in change contexts.  Participants will have access to the unique skills of the TJI’s gender experts, as well as an extraordinary local community of feminist activists who have been and remain deeply involved in conflict, transition and peace implementation in Northern Ireland. 

The academic component of the Summer School is also complemented by a social programme which provides the opportunity for participants to get to know a little about the local area. Social events include a tour of the North Coast, a murals tour in Belfast, film screenings and a Summer School dinner at Belfast Castle
