Fourah Bay College and University of Bedfordshire to Hold Special Court Legacy Seminar

The Mass Communication Department of Fourah Bay College and the Centre for International Media Analysis, Research and Consultancy at the University of Bedfordshire, United Kingdom will hold a one-day seminar  on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 on the  Impact of the Special Court trials on the people of Sierra Leone and Liberia.

The seminar which will be held at Fourah Bay College, University of Sierra Leone is part of a three year legacy project that is being funded by the British Academy to document through sound scholarship, the impact of the Special Court trials on the people of Sierra Leone and Liberia.

The project is currently well underway through a PhD thesis undertaken by a scholar at Fourah Bay College on media reporting of two of the trials – the CDF in Freetown and the Charles Taylor trial in The Hague.

It also includes the establishment of a platform through which journalists, civil society activists, lawyers and academics in both West Africa and the UK can dialogue and come up with concrete resolutions on transitional justice and thus strengthen democracy and good governance in the sub region.
