Reintegration and Transitional Justice
Transitional justice processes have the potential to play a crucial role in the healing and reintegration of women victims of conflict-related sexual violence and children born out of war (CBOW) by providing opportunities for truth-telling around the circumstances through which these women were assaulted or abducted, publicly recognizing them as victims, and providing them with reparations. In an attempt to support these processes, the Global Initiative for Justice, Truth and Reconciliation launches a campaign, Reintegration and Transitional Justice, that focuses on the experiences and biopsychosocial impacts of conflict and sexual violence on women, girls, and CBOW.
Starting on April 26th, GIJTR Consortium Partners – International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, Asia Justice and Rights, the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation , Humanitarian Law Center and the Documentation Center of Cambodia – will share first-hand experiences of women survivors of conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) and mothers of CBOW. The campaign will culminate with the launch of a toolkit and policy briefs designed to aid practitioners and policymakers in designing transitional justice processes better suited to addressing the unique needs of CRSV survivors and CBOW.
