API Policy Forum: Which way Transitional Justice in Africa – Restoration or Retribution? Nov. 7 2013 @ Laico Regency
The Africa Policy Institute (API) wishes to invite you to a Policy Forum on Africa’s experience with transitional justice that will take place on Thursday, 7th November 2013 between 0830-1230 hrs at The Laico Regency Hotel, Nairobi.
Two developments have drawn approaches to transitional justice in Kenya into sharp focus. First is the release in May 2013 of the report by the Kenyan Truth Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC); second is the on-going stand-off between the African Union and the International Criminal Court over what is viewed as a retributive approach likely to expose African states to further insecurity in Africa.
The main aim of this and subsequent forums is to provide a forum for robust intellectual and policy debate on transitional justice with the hope of developing a clear and home grown roadmap for tackling past injustices while reconciling, stabilizing and healing victims, communities and societies affected by conflict and consolidating democratic governance.
These high-level policy forums bring together high-ranking governmental experts, practitioners and thinkers on transitional justice in think-tanks, academy, media and civil society.
