Jointly hosted by INCORE and TJI 
University of Ulster 

Professor Michael Humphrey, University of Sydney 

"Human rights and reconciliation in the neo-liberal democratic state: 
Argentina and South Africa" 

Thursday 6 December, 1.15pm 
Dalriada House, Jordanstown Campus, University of Ulster 

Prof Michael Humphrey holds the Chair in Sociology at the University 
of Sydney. A dominant theme in his work has been the changing 
relationship of state to citizens and citizenship in the context of 
globalisation. His current research is on contemporary human rights 
politics and the recovery of citizenship and the caring state in 
Argentina and South Africa. Its focus is on victims' movements. It 
comes out of earlier work on nation states in political crisis and 
large-scale violence and the processes of political transition to 
democratic government. In this research he focused on the legacies of 
violence looking onto the politics of victims, trauma and national 
reconciliation. Another strand of current research continuing his long 
interest in the sociology of Islam is on insecurity, Muslims/Islam in 
the West and transnational governmentality. His work is comparative 
and based on field research in different locations including 
Australia, Argentina, Uruguay, South Africa, and Lebanon. Two major 
publications include Islam, Multiculturalism and Transnationalism: 
from the Lebanese Diaspora, I.B. Tauris,1998; and The Politics of
Atrocity & Reconciliation; From Terror to Trauma, London: Routledge,
2002.
