Author: Arts and Letters


Ana Garcia Rodicio, visiting fellow at the University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, will present a lecture titled “Post-Genocide Transitional Justice: The Process of Cambodia in Dialogue with Bosnia and Rwanda” at 4:15p.m. Nov. 3 (Thursday) in Room C103 of the Hesburgh Center for International Studies at Notre Dame.

Sponsored by the Kroc Institute, the presentation is free and open to the public.

Garcia Rodicio’s project at the Kroc Institute is “A Comprehensive Theory of Restorative Justice in Three Post-Genocide Societies: Cambodia, Rwanda and Bosnia-Herzegovina.” It aims to reach action-oriented theoretical conclusions that will expose further explorations on the restorative justice standard. Garcia Rodicio was the coordinator of a research project on these issues in Cambodia in 1999 and 2000 and did field work in the Balkans the past two years.

Garcia Rodicio holds a bachelor’s degree in law from the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain. She also earned a post-graduate degree in international humanitarian assistance from the Universities of Deusto in Spain and Oxford. She is a doctoral candidate at the University Institute of International Relations “Ortega y Gasset” in Madrid and, in the last three years, she has worked as researcher on the project “Conflicts: Prevention, Resolution, Reconciliation” for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Spanish Committee/Globalitaria in Madrid.
