African Transitional Justice Research Network - Phase II

The African Transitional Justice Research Network (ATJRN) aims to strengthen the capacity of African researchers and civil society institutions to conduct effective human rights advocacy through the production of high-quality, locally based and targeted empirical research. Phase I of the project (102862) focused on creating a one-stop website and list serve, and building the capacity of African human rights researchers to conduct such research.

Phase two will increase the capacity of researchers involved in transitional justice issues through various activities, including regional meetings and practical field-based training. It will also seek to expand the network to include additional African partners.
