Sociocybernetics, Transitional Justice and Other Issues

Tuesday, 12 July 2016: 16:00-17:30
Location: Hörsaal 15 (Juridicum)
RC51 Sociocybernetics (host committee)

Language: English

Transitional Justice is a very high complex approach to achieving justice in times of transition from conflict and/or state repression. It needs a strong goal-oriented but also empathetic and flexible steering process, which has to achieve accountability; and redressing victims, transitional justice provides recognition of the rights of victims, promotes civic trust and strengthens the democratic rule of law. But the adequate consideration of the complexity of all existing driving factors is very difficult and requires usually a second-order observation process by including a variety of social movements of civil society. But this requirement seems to be after all available experiences the weak point of transitional justice. 
The session invites papers which describe practical experiences and scientific analysis of steering processes of transition justice and aim at analysing this weak point and asking for solutions from a sociocybernetic point of view.
