Sarudzayi Matambanadzo's picture

Perspectives on redress/transitional justice/reparations that center the indigenous peoples in Aotearoa and Australia very welcome.  


On March 16 and 17, 2018, Tulane University will host an International Conference on Redress for Historical Injustice at Tulane University. The conference, which concerns reparations and redress for a variety of historical harms, is open to all scholars who focus on this topic. Although the conference committee is in the early stages of planning this event, we anticipate the participation of approximately 40-50 participants representing every corner of the globe. For more information, please contact Robert Westley or Saru Matambanadzo at Tulane Law School.


The call for papers is attached below.


Kind regards,

The Tulane Conference on Redress and Reparations is coming!


A Conference of Global Perspectives:

Regimes of Redress and Reparations, Transitional Justice, and the Rule of Law


Tulane Law School

New Orleans, Louisiana


The organizers invite scholars and activists working on issues related to racial reconciliation, transitional justice, historical memory, regimes of redress, and the rule of law to participate in a two-day conference focused on these themes. The conference will be both transnational and interdisciplinary in scope. Interdisciplinary synergies will be created through the inclusion of experts from regions that have experienced racial and ethnic oppression and are in the process of achieving (or have successfully achieved) reconciliation through the establishment of the rule of law, norms of redress, and cultures of remembrance.


The two-day conference will consist of four to six panels based on submitted proposals, as well as at least one keynote address and one plenary session composed by the organizers. We encourage those who are interested in presenting a paper or organizing a panel to submit paper abstracts to the organizers no later than January 19, 2018.


Submitted proposals should contain “Redress Conference” in the subject line and should be sent via email to Please send all inquiries about the conference to Robert Westley’s assistant, Andrea Brigalia, at
