Transitional Justice in Crisis Situations: Addressing Violent Extremism, Beyond a Militarised Approach

Transitional Justice in Crisis Situations: Addressing Violent Extremism, Beyond a Militarised Approach

This policy paper draws from the discussions of the Fourth African Transitional Justice Forum, held on 26–28 October 2020 under the theme "Silencing the Guns in the Context of COVID-19: Progress, Problems and Prospects." Following an overview of the growing threat posed by violent extremism in Africa, the paper highlights limitations of militarised approaches. It further builds a case for mobilising transitional justices measures to address violent extremism, and proposes the tools enshrined in the African Union Transitional Justice Policy (AUTJP) as a viable option.
