In Canada (again), focus on Reparations

I am in Canada once again focusing on the issue of reparations. A group of us are presenting the the results of one of the most comprehensive attempts to compare and evaluate programs to repair the harms caused to victims of human rights abuse. These are being presented at the symposium Repairing the Past: Reparations and Transitions to Democracy, the project was a partnership between the IDRC and the ICTJ. The symposium is taking place March 11-12, 2004, at Canada's International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in Ottawa. People interested in my paper can email me. For more information and the outline of the findings go here.
