International Center for Transitional Justice

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: March 28, 2013, 3:21 PM

Description

The International Center for Transitional Justice is an international non-profit organization specializing in the field of transitional justice. ICTJ works to help societies in transition address legacies of massive human rights violations and build civic trust in state institutions as protectors of human rights.

In the aftermath of mass atrocity and repression, we assist institutions and civil society groups—the people who are driving and shaping change in their societies—in considering measures to provide truth, accountability, and redress for past abuses. We do this by providing technical expertise and knowledge of relevant comparative experiences in transitional justice from across the globe.

  • ICTJ provides technical assistance to governments, the justice sector, the UN and other international bodies. We highlight the responsibility of states to address past violations and help set out concrete ways to do this. We work worldwide.
  • ICTJ advises and helps build capacity on specific initiatives and strategies with victims and their representatives, on a range of transitional justice approaches—including criminal prosecutions, reparations initiatives, truth-seeking, memorialization.
  • Our research aims to bolster knowledge of successes and failures in the field, promote innovation, and inform best practice. We share this knowledge locally, regionally and internationally, in the form of publications, policy recommendations, working sessions and international convenings. Browse the publications library or learn more about our research projects.

We work to ensure local ownership of the transition process, prioritize the needs and interests of victims, and to build confidence in the rule of law in society at large.
