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 and 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 works to ensure the following:
- Transitional justice policies and processes are informed by the experiences and needs of conflict-affected populations in Uganda and the Great Lakes region;
- Local initiatives for redress, healing and reconciliation for conflict-affected are supported in communities in Uganda and the Great Lakes region;
- Gender- and age-inclusive transitional justice programme development and service delivery are promoted;
- The institutional capacity of of JRP is enhanced to maximise programme delivery and promote sustainability.
