ICTJ was founded in 2001 to help societies deal with legacies of massive human rights abuses and achieve sustainable peace. Twenty years later, ICTJ continues to provide advice, support, and technical assistance to victims, members of civil society, and state actors committed to justice in countries around the world from Afghanistan to Colombia, Lebanon, Nepal, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, and Uganda, to name a few. In a fast-changing world, ICTJ regularly reexamines and adapts its methodology to develop innovative solutions to emerging problems, advance its mission, and achieve justice for victims of human rights violations. In that spirit, ICTJ recently launched an exciting new website and newsletter design. After over a year of research, planning, surveying stakeholders, designing, and testing, we unveiled a site that better aligns with what ICTJ and transitional justice are today.

The Resource Library brings together all of ICTJ’s content from the last 20 years and allows users to easily search the collection by type, country, topic, and keyword. In addition to reports and other publications, you can find feature articles, opinion pieces, multimedia projects, photo galleries, and videos. These news and multimedia materials represent high-quality reporting and rigorous research, and often highlight the importance of art and culture to the transitional justice process.

ICTJ is committed to making its resources accessible to all people across the globe. To this end, the new website adheres to the most recent Web Content Accessibility Guidelines ensuring all users including those with disabilities such as visual impairment can easily navigate it and enjoy the full range of content. The new site is also designed to respond to mobile devices and various screen sizes, making it easier to use a phone or tablet to explore the latest from ICTJ on the go. Finally, the site is more thoroughly available in Arabic and Spanish and for the first time in French.

The website features updated menu options and new sections. Now, you can learn more about ICTJ’s history and how we work, as well as brush up on the basics of transitional justice. We also expanded our list of crosscutting topics to more accurately reflect the evolving transitional justice field, adding peace processes, Sustainable Development Goals, and prevention.

ICTJ strives to provide the most relevant and up-to-date research, news, and commentary on transitional justice. We invite you to take a stroll through ICTJ.org and see what’s new on the site, where we work, and in the transitional justice field. If you have not already, please subscribe to our two monthly newsletters, which bring all the latest from ICTJ straight to your inbox.
