In the second semester students have the opportunity to go on a study trip to learn about leading institutions and organizations active in the field of transitional justice.
In the 2016–2017 academic year students will travel to Nuremberg, Germany, symbolic of dealing with Germany’s Nazi past. During the trip students will be able to visit the famous Courtroom 600 where the Nuremberg trials took place in 1945, as well as other sites of memorialization and museums.
The study trip will be conducted in cooperation with the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and will also include a special lecture on war crimes, trials and memorialization efforts in Germany.
