"Justice, Forgiveness and the Khmer Rouge Tribunal"
Sophal Ear
Friday, September 12, 2008
4 p.m., 223 Moses Hall
Sponsored by the Institute of International Studies
Co-sponsored by the Religion, Politics and Globalization Program, the Human Rights Center, and the War Crimes Studies Center

What does "Justice" mean when 30 years have passed after the death of nearly a quarter of the population and not one person has been found guilty of any crimes by an internationally recognized court? What forgiveness can be given or taken away in this time? In 1998, Cambodia's Prime Minister implored his people to "dig a hole and bury the past"; what form can transitional justice take under such conditions? This talk will
explore the Buddhist meaning of justice and forgiveness in the context of the Khmer Rouge Tribunal now taking place in Cambodia.
