Advocating Justice: Civil Society and Transitional Justice in Africa

The "Advocating Justice" workshop brought together Africa-based practitioners and scholars to share experiences and evaluate African civil society's advocacy for transitional justice on the continent. Drawing on workshop papers and discussions on strategies used in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, this report examines and highlights local organisations' central role in shaping transitional justice agendas in Africa.
