Earlier this year in March, the International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) held a conference in Tunis on “Truth, Accountability and Asset Recovery: How Transitional Justice Can Fight Corruption.” The conference brought together experts, public officials as well as activists from countries in which transitional justice processes have been or are being used to seek truth about large-scale corruption, recover ill-gotten assets and pursue accountability after conflict or authoritarian rule or after a corrupt government is no longer in power. The international Conference allowed the transitional justice and anti-corruption experts from the Gambia, Kenya, South Africa, Armenia, and Tunisia to share solutions to a common problem:

How can countries emerging from dictatorship, war, or political transitions hold corrupt ex- rulers accountable, recover their ill-gotten assets, and ensure victims achieve justice and obtain reparations?

Contributions from the experts allowed the ICTJ to produce, in August 2020, a conference report that gives an overview of the conference and its panel discussions. In this online launch event for the conference report, ICTJ hopes to further enhance exchanges and strengthen the capacity of the Tunisian authorities directly involved in pursuing accountability, recovering stolen assets and managing these assets for purposes of implementing reparations and achieving development in marginalized regions. It will feature two panel discussions, "Consolidating State Efforts to Recover Stolen Assets," and "How can Asset Recovery support the Right to Reparations in a Transitional Justice process?"
