CSRS and partners reflect on more effective transitional justice

The Centre Suisse de Recherches en Côte d'Ivoire (CSRS), in collaboration with the Swiss Peace Foundation (Swisspeace), organized an international workshop on "Production and circulation of knowledge on transitional justice between research and action: experiences and challenges " from 23rd–24th April 2018.
One of the objectives of this workshop was to examine the best forms of synergy between research, decision makers and practitioners in the field of transitional justice, and to identify a mechanism for dealing with conflicts that have led to massive violations of human rights in order to prevent them, to preserve victims’ rights and to open a democratic society.

The Director General of the CSRS, Prof Bassirou Bonfoh, expressed the hope that the work will produce "new knowledge" through neutral advice so that decision-makers make informed decisions to facilitate institutional transitions and effective outflow management of crises.

During these two days, about thirty experts and researchers from Côte d'Ivoire, Switzerland, England and South Sudan reflected on solutions for a more effective transitional justice. They also worked on defining the place of civil society and on the synergy between research, politics and practices in the mobilization of knowledge for peace.

This workshop represented a continuation of an ongoing study conducted simultaneously in Côte d'Ivoire, Mozambique and South Sudan.
