Reporting Justice » Overview

All over the world people are facing the challenge of new forms of justice in the aftermath of conflict. Whether it’s the International Criminal Court in The Hague or local tribunals dealing with war crimes, citizens are struggling to understand what justice can mean to them.

Journalists and students of journalism need to be able to explain these new developments. This website provides tools and links to enable the current and next generation of reporters and opinion-makers to explore and analyse these new institutions.

This is an exciting area to report on, in which history is being written, but seeing the wider picture of changes in the international world order, and getting all the terminology right, is not easy.

This website presents an evolving model university curricula developed for use by a variety of university journalism and law schools, in educating their students to report on international justice events, issues and institutions. The latest version builds upon the foundation laid in the form of a White Paper at Salzburg in February of 2010, to include the most current information and debates in international justice, as we look ever to expand the wealth of knowledge presented here.

This is a work in progress, which we are pleased to share with a wider audience. We would appreciate your comments and hope you will revisit regularly to see new materials and ideas.
