Since 2005, the Justice and Reconciliation Project (JRP) has played a key role in transitional justice (TJ) through seeking to understand and explain the interests, needs, concerns ad views of communities affected by conflict.
We aim to promote sustainable peace through the active involvement of war-affected communities through research and advocacy.
JRP’s mission is to empower conflict-affected communities to participate in processes of justice, healing and reconciliation.
JRP envisions a just and peaceful society.
JRP’s work is guided by the following objectives:
- To preserve memory of conflict-affected communities through documentation;
- To advocate for locally-sensitive approaches to TJ;
- To mobilise communities to engage in processes for redress, reconciliation and healing
- To support vulnerable groups and individuals in their pursuit of justice.
