Julie Shackford-Bradley has taught in the Peace and Conflict Studies program and International and Area Studies since 2008. She received her PhD from the Department of South and Southeast Asian Studies at Berkeley, with a Designated Emphasis in Women Gender and Sexuality. Dr. Shackford-Bradley’s current research interests lie at the intersection of Conflict Resolution and Human Rights, specifically regarding multiple meanings and expectations of justice, ranging from accountability and an end of impunity to reconciliation and social equity. Her recent work in Uganda traces the processes of establishing a Transitional Justice mechanism in response to decades of conflict in the North, and the challenges of integrating multiple approaches to justice while ensuring that the needs of victims are met. She also works at the local level on Restorative Justice projects in the Berkeley area. She is a member of the SEEDS Research and Evaluation Working Group that assists this community-based organization’s work in implementing Restorative Justice in Berkeley Schools, and is on the Advisory Committee for the new Restorative Justice Center on the UC Berkeley campus. Dr. Shackford-Bradley also serves on the Executive Council for the Interdisciplinary Human Rights Minor at Berkeley and is the faculty advisor for the Berkeley Human Rights Review, an undergraduate peer reviewed journal organized and run by students since 2009. She has been trained and certified in Mediation and Circle Processes, and has been a practicing mediator since 2005.
