Transitional Justice

As a National Human Rights Institution operating in a society that has experienced violent conflict, the Commission works to support the development and implementation of official and unofficial policies, institutions and initiatives that address the legacy of wide scale abuses and violations that occurred in the past. This includes both the more legally-oriented elements of transitional justice (including court inquiries, inquests, prosecutions, or prisoner reintegration programmes) as well as the equally important parallel initiatives such as community reconciliation, the promotion and protection of cultural rights, victims’ services, and institutional reforms.
