Universities, we often hear, should both function and behave more like business enterprises. Is this a welcome trend that will free us from much waste, complacency and arbitrariness? Or is it a trend to be fiercely resisted because it would corrupt the very core of what a university should ambition to be?

The Perelman Centre for Legal Philosophy at the Faculty of Law of the Université Libre de Bruxelles is organising an international Conference on Jus Post Bellum and Transitional Justice. The event will take place in Brussels on 21-22 October 2010. This Conference is part of a series of scholarly events of the European ATLAS research project on International Humanitarian Law supported by the EU under the 7th Framework Programme.
This Conference will address Jus Post Bellum as a new legal phenomenon and as new legal practice. As a new legal phenomenon, the content and position of Jus Post Bellum in the larger framework of international (humanitarian) law will be discussed. International and national legal developments will be examined against this theoretical perspective. As a new legal practice, cases of transitional justice dealing with the past and the future will illustrate how Jus Post Bellum becomes operational.
Venue: Nouvel Auditoire, Palais des Académies 1 Rue Ducale 1000 Brussels
Compulsory but free registration: Email to Matthias Vanhullebusch (Matthias.email@example.com) by indicating in the subject line “Registration JPB ATLAS + Your Name” and which days you would like to attend.
