“My participation in the Summer School was a new experience learning and working with an international team of lecturers and participants. I learned from experiences from people from Libya and the Maghreb region in general. Also the lecturers gave me an insight in the way the ICTY and ICC work. The concept of the Summer school was very well planned out, with the combination of lectures, workshops and field trips. The contacts I gained on Summer school are priceless.”

Sven Milekic Program Coordinator for Transitional Justice – Youth Initiative for Human Rights, Croatia

"It was really an incredible opportunity and significant experience to engage and share experiences with an international family and meet such wonderful friendly people from different countries who themselves went through similar experiences, it really looks like visiting people from the future."

“A picturesque Mediterranean island where creative learning meets lots of sun and interesting debates.”

“The Summer school in Cres was a unique opportunity to hear and meet transitional justice experts from both the former Yugoslavia and the MENA region. The School is an excellent platform for exchanging views and ideas about politics of memory in two very different regions, offering an interesting comparative approach for studying post conflict societies.”
