Transitional justice: lessons from Kenya on what works, and what doesn’t

The Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission of Kenya
Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - 08:15

As transitional justice efforts have become more widespread, their mandates have also become increasingly ambitious. They are now often called on to reveal the truth about past injustices, to see that justice is done, and to reconcile individuals and communities.
