Exploring the role of transitional justice in responding to displacement
In times of conflict and repression, people are often forced from their homes and can suffer human rights abuses and grave hardship while displaced. In the first systematic research project of its kind, ICTJ and the Brookings-LSE Project on Internal Displacement asked how transitional justice measures could address injustices suffered by displaced persons. The multi-year study Transitional Justice and Displacement examined the capacity of transitional justice measures to address abuses related to displacement, engage the justice claims of refugees and the internally displaced, and contribute to durable solutions. It produced a book and a report, in addition to a set of case studies.
To accompany the release of the findings of Transitional Justice and Displacement, ICTJ presents an interactive map to explore experiences from countries featured in the study. Click on the pins for highlights of case studies that explore conceptual and practical links between transitional justice and the humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding sectors.
