Human Rights and Post Conflict Justice in Africa
What are the implications of post conflict justice for the full enjoyment of human rights in Africa, particularly for the victims of gross human rights violations? How effective is post conflict justice in Africa to redress injustice and provide remedies to victims? How involved are the African governments to facilitate such justice for victims? Are there any legal and/or socio-political obstacles in Africa preventing victims from completely enjoying their human rights in terms of access to full remedies? What “victim-friendly” policies need to be adopted to reinforce the efficacy of post conflict justice in Africa?
