After periods of conflict and authoritarianism, education institutions often need to be reformed or rebuilt. But in settings where education has been used to support repressive policies and human rights violations, or where conflict and abuses have resulted in lost educational opportunities, legacies of injustice may pose significant challenges to effective reform. Peacebuilding and development perspectives, which normally drive the reconstruction agenda, pay little attention to the violent past.

This booklet presents information on how and when sexual violence committed in time of conflict becomes an international crime. Employing a simple question-and-answer format and illustrations, it is designed for those working in the field to assist survivors of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Among other clarifications, it helps to explain the difference between sexual violence as defined under common law and sexual violence as defined under international law. The booklet is based on training modules developed by ICTJ in workshops held with NGO partners in 2011 and 2013, in Kinshasa and Bukavu.

Transitional Justice is often pursued in contexts where people have been forced from their homes by human rights violations and have suffered additional abuses while displaced. Little attention has been paid, however, to how transitional justice measures can respond to the injustices of displacement. Transitional Justice and Displacement is the result of a collaborative research project of the International Center for Transitional Justice and the Brookings-LSE Project on Internal Displacement. It examines the capacity of transitional justice measures to address displacement, engage the justice claims of displaced persons, and support durable solutions, and analyzes the links between transitional justice and the interventions of humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding actors. The book makes a compelling case for ensuring that justice measures address displacement and that responses to displacement incorporate transitional justice.
