ONLINE PANEL DISCUSSION

NOT WITHOUT US: STRENGTHENING VICTIM PARTICIPATION IN TRANSITIONAL JUSTICE PROCESSES IN UGANDA

24 SEPTEMBER 2020
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (EAT)

More than 10 years after the end of the 20-year conflict in Uganda, victims have yet to receive justice and reparations and continue to be mostly

sidelined in the transitional justice processes that affect them, according to Not Without Us, a new report by Emerging Solutions Africa, the Uganda Victims’ Foundation, and REDRESS.

In this online event, participants will discuss the key findings of the report, including how victims have been impacted by the inexorable delay in passing

and implementing the National Transitional Justice Policy. The report notes that despite the inclusion of multiple transitional justice processes in this

comprehensive policy document and a detailed gender-sensitive and victim-centered framework, the consultations and engagement with victims did not

allow them to meaningfully influence and impact the design and shaping of the Policy.
