Engaging Forcibly Displaced Communities in Transitional Justice Processes: A Guidebook for Practitioners

Engaging Forcibly Displaced Communities in Transitional Justice Processes: A Guidebook for Practitioners

Collaboratively written with Fantanka (the Gambia), The Day After (Syria), the Consultancy for Human Rights and Displacement (Colombia) and SOS Sahel Sudan (Sudan), this guidebook for practitioners addresses the global phenomenon of forced migration and seeks to outline how the voices of asylum seekers, refugees and internally displaced people can be effectively integrated into transitional justice processes. Understanding forced migration as both a consequence of conflict and authoritarian rule and a violation in itself, it provides pathways to work directly with forced migrant communities within a transitional justice framework, focusing on assessment, participation, documentation and advocacy. The guidebook emerges from a Global Initiative for Justice, Truth and Reconciliation project based on community consultations, grassroots truth-telling, memorialisation initiatives, research and co-writing.
