Corporate Accountability and Transitional Justice in Africa Webinar

Corporate Accountability and Transitional Justice in Africa Webinar

During transitions to peace and democracy across various African countries, measures have been introduced to hold perpetrators accountable and provide reparations to victims. Corporate accountability and redress for corporate victims have however been a missing piece in this puzzle. This webinar will explore some of the systems and mechanisms that have been put in place or which are under development to strengthen such avenues of accountability and redress, ranging from the international and regional to the local. What have they delivered and what hope do they hold for justice?
