Updated! Justice in Perspective, a website on truth, justice and reconciliation in transition

Justice in Perspective - a website on truth, justice and reconciliation in transition - has been redesigned and updated!

This online resource, developed and maintained by the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation, presents an overview of the transitional justice processes that have been and are currently being undertaken by countries in all regions. These include truth commissions, inquiries, traditional mechanisms, reparations programmes, amnesty programmes, prosecutions and litigation, mainly official but also civil society driven.

Please go to www.justiceinperspective.org.za to see the recent updates for the following countries:

Africa: Burundi, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan, Uganda

Asia & Australasia: Bangladesh, Philippines, Solomon Islands, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand

Middle East: Lebanon

Latin America: Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras

North America: Canada

Justice in Perspective provides the background for the transitional justice process in each country and summaries of the different mechanisms, with details of mandates and outcomes, as well as easy access to key resources and sites for further study. The information provided for each mechanism is its name, period of operation, mandate and operations, results, background and the latest update, where applicable. The site also seeks to outline not only the outcomes of each mechanism but also continuing efforts to address issues of truth, justice and reconciliation that either flow out of the mechanism or are a result of its shortcomings or limitations. It will be updated again, with new countries added, in the first half of 2012.

This is a GREAT resource!

Weldone! Hats off! Thus a solid resource. My humble suggestion is to consider South Sudan too. She is hot spot (human security situation wise) given that it is a post-conflict situation deeply crying for transitional justice. Thanks!

however, just wanted to inquiry whether you have something for DRC as well. yes that country needs reconciliation as well. thanks fro doing something. best regards
