Addressing Diversity and Inclusion through Transitional Justice

Addressing Diversity and Inclusion through Transitional Justice

The field of transitional justice has evolved considerably over the last 30 years. Key to these developments have been the increasingly strong voices of different sectors of society who have demanded that their experiences be acknowledged, that their particular and diverse needs be recognized, and that they be accepted as essential stakeholders in transitional justice processes. This call for greater inclusiveness has not just sought to adjust the boundaries of who is at the table, it has also challenged the way we understand political conflict, the meaning of transition, and the ways that society rebuilds and envisions its future. This policy brief outlines policy and practice on diversity and inclusion in transitional justice on the African continent, and explores how these principles can be given more substance.
