This paper examines the impact of gender-focused transitional justice measures adopted in Morocco. In a one of the first transitional justice programs implemented by an Arab country, Morocco’s Equity Reconciliation Council (IER) has included stipulations on including women in transitional justice process and highlighted human rights abuses pertaining specifically to women such as sexual assault, rape, and torture. This paper examines the effectiveness of the IER’s current gender focus and offers recommendations to further ensure female participation in the transitional justice program.
