In 2013, South Sudan was on the brink of collapse. Internal armed conflict, serious human rights violations and a divided government led to the deaths and internal displacement of many thousands. The 2015 peace agreement created a range of transitional justice mechanisms but none have been implemented. Renewed violence in 2016 necessitated a revitalised peace process.
This event will discuss findings from a new ISS report on citizen’s perspectives on transitional justice in South Sudan.
Chair: Allan Ngari, Senior Researcher, ISS
Jame David Kolok, ISS Consultant and expert on citizens’ participation in governance and transitional justice in South Sudan
David Deng, Human Rights Lawyer working on transitional justice in South Sudan (TBC)
