Dr Gearoid Millar has been invited to share his latest chapter at the 5th Annual Postgraduate Law Conference, Reimagining Justice and Ethnography, at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow on April 29 and 30.
Speaking at the virtual conference, Dr Millar will deliver the chapter, 'The Long-Term Legacies of Transitional Justice: Understanding the Paradox of Peace in Sierra Leone', which is included in the edited volume, entitled Truth Commissions and State Building in Africa, by Professor Bonny Ibhawoh (McMaster University), Dr Sylvia Bawa (York University) and Dr Jasper Ayelazuno (Universiy for Development Studies).
In his talk, Dr Millar proposes that the program specific and temporally bounded nature of evaluative research has ignored the complex interactions between parallel projects in post-conflict intervention.
In particular, he will explain how the paradox of peace in Sierra Leone can be clarified by incorporating a complexity-oriented understanding of post-conflict intervention, such is made possible through Ethnographic Peace Research (EPR).
The conference brings together postgraduate students and researchers from the fields of sociology, anthropology, law, and psychology (among others), and prompts participants to consider ethnography through an interdisciplanry framework.
