Co-Sponsored by

Wednesday, May 29, 2013
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM US EDT

By teleconference only
The objective of the program is to initiate discussion on the role of, and challenges faced by, mechanisms addressing human rights abuses and promoting conflict resolution (i.e. truth and reconciliation commissions, criminal prosecutions, gender justice initiatives) in African countries in transition, especially in relation to the promotion and enjoyment of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence. From this discussion, we hope to access positive steps taken, and to recommend ways to go forward in promoting transitional justice on the continent.
