The transitional justice review of the DRC focuses on the ongoing security and human rights crisis in the DRC. The report recommends that the government execute existing arrest warrants, reform and strengthen the legal mechanisms for addressing grave human rights violations, establish a truth and reconciliation commission with a well-defined mandate and guarantee legal recourse and voice for victims of sexual violence. The report also stresses the role of the international community to assist the government in realizing these goals.
