Peace, Justice and Accountability After War and Dictatorship Prospects for the African Context

The Peace Building section of the Belgian Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, together with the Centre for Historical Research and Documentation on War and Contemporary Society (Belgium) and the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (South Africa), hosted the workshop 'Peace, justice and accountability after war and dictatorship: Prospects for the African context' from 7-8 March in Cape Town, South Africa. The workshop involved a series of presentations and discussions in response to Luc Huyse's report 'Transitional justice after war and dictatorship: Learning from European experiences' (1945-2000). The workshop brought together 32 participants from 8 different countries (South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Mozambique, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Belgium) to engage with this report, review the findings and recommendations, and explore the possibilities and challenges of drawing lessons for the African context.
