Nina Schneider was invited by the National University of Brasília (UNB) to talk about the concept of transitional justice and her new volume “Legacies of State violence and Transitional Justice in Cold War Latin America: a Janus-faced Paradigm?”, co-edited with Marcia Esparza (JJAY College). The UNB is currently hosting a new transitional justice network - the „Rede Latino-Americana de Justiça de Transição” (RLAJT, The Latin American Transitional Justice Network). One of the members of the RLAJT executive board, Professor José Otávio Nogueira Guimarães, conducted the interview with the historian. Nina Schneider is currently a Visiting Scholar at the UNB working on a project on the Brazilian Truth Commission funded by the German Research Foundation. She has published widely on post-authoritarian Brazil's reckoning history and, more recently, conducted research in the area of critical human rights studies. Her new volume which was supported by the Zukunftskolleg is forthcoming at the end of this year.
