Forum 14 September: The Road to Transitional Justice

mdc__chZimbabwe's history since 1890 is littered with disturbing human rights abuses. Those who have fallen victim continue to lament the pardon of the perpetrators by previous governments as justice denied. This string of pardons is also blamed for perpetuating the cycle of violence. Others claim that the danger of facing prosecution for past atrocities is what keeps Zanu PF hold

To address this question the Forum presents Giulia Tranchina a human rights expert who has worked in several African countries.

Giulia will analyse the Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO forum’s transitional justice model against lessons from Latin America and South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation. Please do not miss this contentious discussion.
