The links between land, reparations and transitional justice are unclear in many post-conflict countries, including South Sudan. The 2013 African Union Commission of Inquiry on South Sudan highlighted land grabbing as a sign of accumulated grievances and called for land reform in transitional justice processes. However, South Sudan’s 2018 peace agreement doesn’t include land-related conflict in the transitional justice framework.
This seminar discusses a new report by the Institute for Security Studies that investigated citizens’ perceptions about land and reparative justice in South Sudan.
