“Putting communities & survivors at the heart and soul of transitional justice processes in West Africa”

The ATJLF approach to supporting transitional justice in West Africa, will be community-centred and transformational. Our approach is built on the premise that transitional justice processes work better, have higher levels of legitimacy, and are more likely to succeed when there is an inclusive process, increased awareness among affected communities and the general public, and when there is genuine collective ownership. Our aim is to amplify the role of communities and survivors in transitional justice processes.

Therefore, the ATJLF’s funding strategy will focus three broad thematic pillars:

(1) Truth, Justice & Accountability

(2) Reparations 

(3) Institutional Reform & Enabling Environment
