Vietnam Legacies Symposium

October 22 - October 23

ONLINE CONFERENCE

Vietnam Legacies Symposium

This fall, the Human Rights Center hosts its virtual symposium on the legacies of the Vietnam War. Panelists will consider topics including unexploded ordnance, health effects of Agent Orange, US veterans’ activism, and memorialization. Other themes include militarism, African American soldiers’ experience, and the enduring need for transitional justice.

The Vietnam Legacies Project uses a transitional justice framework, which addresses how societies come to terms with the legacy of large-scale human rights violations using “judicial and non-judicial processes and mechanisms”. It asks whether enough has been done to come to terms with the legacy of the war within the United States, and considers its impact on Viet Nam.
