New Beginnings: A Way Forward for Transitional Justice in South Sudan

Summary

From 10-12 November 2015, the South Sudan Law Society (SSLS), the Transitional Justice Working Group (TJWG), and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) held a conference entitled, New Beginnings: The Role of truth, justice, reconciliation and healing in promoting sustainable peace in South Sudan. The purpose of the conference was to bring together a group of key stakeholders to brainstorm a way forward for the implementation of Chapter V of the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCISS), which addresses issues of “Transitional Justice, Accountability, Reconciliation and Healing.” The SSLS convened a follow-up workshop in Nairobi on 4 February 2016 to share the conference outcomes with groups in the diaspora and obtain their input on the way forward for transitional justice in South Sudan.
