Youth perspectives on gender and masculinities in Burundi, the DRC, Mali and South Sudan – Promoting effective TJ policies in Africa

Youth perspectives on gender and masculinities in Burundi, the DRC, Mali and South Sudan – Promoting effective TJ policies in Africa

The African Union's Transitional Justice Policy (AUTJP), adopted by the AU Heads of State and Government in February 2019, calls for transitional justice (TJ) mechanisms that not only deliver justice, but also transform fundamental gender biases in societies. Whereas gender considerations are a staple of most TJ discussions on the continent, masculinity as a cause and consequence of violence is a relatively novel concept.

This policy brief draws on youth voices in Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Mali and South Sudan to provide a youth perspective on gender norms after mass violence and offers recommendations for gender transformative TJ policies.
