IHOIK/International Centre for Transitional Justice


Core support to The International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ). ICTJ works to help societies in transition address legacies of massive human rights violations and build civic trust in state institutions as protectors of human rights. ICTJ´s primary aim is to promote accountability by helping countries develop effective responses to human rights abuse arising from repressive rule, mass atrocity, or armed conflict. In the aftermath of mass atrocity and repression, ICTJ assists institutions and civil society groups—the people who are driving and shaping change in their societies—in considering measures to provide truth, accountability, and redress for past abuses. ICTJ provides technical assistance to governments, the justice sector, the UN and other international bodies. ICTJ highlight the responsibility of states to address past violations and help set out concrete ways to do this. ICTJ works locally, regionally and globally. ICTJ works to ensure local ownership of the transition process, prioritize the needs and interests of victims, and to build confidence in the rule of law in society at large.
