Opening of First Regional Transitional Justice School

The first Regional Transitional Justice School was opened on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013. Sandra Orlović, Executive Director of the Humanitarian Law Center, stated at the School’s opening ceremony that fact-finding about the past is important because it represents a way to become immune to myths, which always precede new wars.
