La justice transitionnelle - Août 2013

The topic of transitional justice plays an important role in the agenda of governance of the African Union in this year dedicated to ’ Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance ’.
It covers the various processes and mechanisms implemented by a state to try to cope with massive abuses made in the past, in order to establish accountability, serve justice and achieve reconciliation. These processes can either be judicial or non-judicial, with (if any) the intervention of the international community, criminal measures against individuals, compensation, investigations to establish the truth, institutional reform, measures of treatment, or a combination of these measures. This single definition confirms the wide scope and complexity of transitional justice, which are illuminated and enriched in the light of experiences and challenges that are the theme of this conference.

The purpose of this issue of the newsletter is to help popularize the reflection on these issues of transitional justice, and simultaneously realize the progress made by African countries in this regard. You will find :
