UN Security Council

This report from the United Nations (UN) Security Council discusses the UN's increased focus on transitional justice and the rule of law in conflict and post-conflict societies. This focus will yield important lessons for future UN activities. Advancing justice, peace, and democracy in fragile post-conflict settings requires strategic planning, careful integration and sensible sequencing of activities. Approaches must incorporate interdependent institutions, civil society and victims in order to be effective.
