Gender: African women in Transitional Justice: Implications and Challenges

Abstract

 

The mechanisms of Transitional Justice don’t focus on the single criminal trial but create and develop a set of post-conflict tools intending to restore, rehabilitate, and sustain the affected communities for a more peaceful future. Transitional Justice is a means of achieving justice. In this context, it can refer to how countries emerging from periods of conflict in large-scale or systematic human rights violations make access to justice a reality, and ensure that women and marginalized groups play an active role in the pursuit of a just society as well. It is no secret that many African countries have experienced severe conflicts. The health crisis due to the COVID-19 global pandemic has undoubtedly increased the precariousness of the populations in these States. Our contribution aims justly to highlight the path and role of African women in the implementation of transitional justice in African countries that have faced a conflict.
