The concept of “post-conflict and transitional societies” is a heritage of the 20th Century. It is also one of the major issues of international politics and international law that seek to prevent recurrence of such internal crises. Studies on post-conflict studies mainly focus on state-building and transitional justice. Further, the concept of post-conflict and transitional societies is a tremendously complex issue that requires understanding internal dynamics of these societies from the point of different disciplines. Many societal issues still endure in post-conflict and societies in transition, and legal problems, such as those regarding constitutional reforms, institution building, federalism, human rights, legal culture, gender, peace, security, impunity, transitional justice etc, are of capital importance among others. In the recent years a notable literature has developed on peacebuilding efforts in these societies. This initiative aims at compiling those studies and bringing together academics focused on post-conflict societies from different disciplines and to introduce a holistic knowledge of studies on post-conflict societies.

Post-conflict societies have common problems, and therefore we believe that an international cooperation and a joint organization is crucial in order such an initiative to meet success. To this end the University of Sarajevo, and the METU Northern Cyprus are partnering to set up an international summer school for graduate and postgraduate students in Kalkanli, North Cyprus.

The theme of this year is “STATE BUILDING AND DIVISION OF POWERS IN POST-CONFLICT SOCIETIES.” Interdisciplinary and comparative studies on recent cases of the post-conflict societies, in a range from Cyprus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Myanmar, Germany to various Balkan, African and Middle Eastern countries will be central to the summer school.

At the end of the program, participants will receive a joint certificate from the METU NCC and the University of Sarajevo.
