Released in January 2022 , this summary report, The Roles and Responsibilities of Private Sector Actors in Transitional Justice in Africa and Latin America: Phase II, is part of a larger initiative led by the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC), which examines past and present transitional justice processes involving private sector actors, with a focus on accountability for grave human rights violations and grassroots interventions across the two regions. Global Initiative for Justice, Truth and Reconciliation (GIJTR) Consortium partners, the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR) and the Due Process of Law Foundation (DPLF) contributed immensely to this second phase of the project, building on lessons learned in Phase I.
In the second phase, participants and partners delved deeper into litigation as a potential means
of seeking accountability for human rights abuses committed by the private sector in Latin
America and Africa with the goal of influencing and strengthening accountability for private sector violations within transitional justice processes. As described in the case studies and regional reports on trends identified in both regions during Phase I, there have been strong examples of private sector accountability with notable successes thus far, but these gains have mainly come through truth-seeking processes or negotiated settlements.
