Invited by the cluster on “Rights and Legal Institutions” of the Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI), Dr Francesca Lessa presented her book Memory and Transitional Justice in Argentina and Uruguay: Against Impunity on December 4 at the Bergen Resource Centre for International Development.

Attended by a full and mixed audience of students, academics, and researchers, the presentation by Dr Lessa was followed by comments and reflections provided by Senior Researcher Elin Skaar and Dr Camila Gianella (both of CMI). The public also participated asking several questions and raising comments.

This was the last presentation of the year for Dr Lessa, after similar events being organised in London, Oxford, New York, and Montevideo.
