Post-Conflict Justice Survey & Interviews

Published on November 9, 2010        Author: 

Have you worked in the field of post-conflict justice? Would you like the chance to share the story of your experiences?

If you have ever worked on issues relating to post-conflict rule of law or accountability for atrocities, you are invited to participate in a survey about your work experience. You can take the survey on-line in English here. Or if you would prefer to take the survey in French, click here. The survey, which is being conducted by yours truly, Professor Elena Baylis at the University of Pittsburgh Law School, should take only about 10-15 minutes to complete.

As thanks for participating in the survey, you will be eligible to win a $100 Amazon.com gift card. One of every 25 people participating in the survey will win. At the end of the survey, you will see a report summarizing the survey responses so far and indicating how your responses compare to those of other survey-takers. You will also be given the chance to request a copy of the final report of this research study.

We would also welcome the opportunity to talk to you about your post-conflict justice work. You will have the chance to volunteer for an interview at the end of the survey. Interviews will be brief (no more than 30 minutes) and can be conducted in person or over the phone.

The purpose of this research study is to learn about the work and career choices of people working on post-conflict justice issues and to examine what effect those choices are having on the development of the field of post-conflict justice. This is the first study to focus on the role of the people involved in post-conflict justice, rather than primarily on its processes or institutions. By participating, you will help us better understand this emerging area of the law — and have the chance to tell your story as well.

The survey is anonymous, and interviews can also be conducted anonymously if you wish. All individual responses are confidential and will be kept secure. The data from the survey will be reported only in the aggregate. There are no foreseeable risks to you from participating in this research study, and the only benefit offered is the chance at winning a gift card. Your participation is voluntary and you may withdraw from the study at any time.

If you have any questions about this study, or if you wish to volunteer for an interview or request a copy of the final report without taking the survey, you may contact me directly at ebaylis {at} pitt(.)edu
