Building fair, democratic and inclusive societies in Africa.
The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation shapes national approaches to transitional justice and reconciliation in Africa.
Join us for a webinar as we learn about what some young people are doing in their spaces to address Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and related factors.
The longevity of positive peace agreements, grounded in societal reconciliation rather than deterrence, depend on the extent to which such agreements can, over time, remove the root causes that have historically divided conflicting parties. The University of Johannesburg’s Department of Politics and International Relations in collaboration with IJR and the Royal Norwegian Embassy invite you.
IJR mourns the passing away of ‘Africa’s first lady’, Nomzamo Winifred Madikizela-Mandela, an unapologetic stalwart in the fight against apartheid’s racist and unjust policies and structures.
The IJR welcomes the court’s verdict and sentencing of Vicki Momberg by the Randburg Magistrate court. The IJR also applauds the country’s justice system for finally viewing racism as a crime appropriate of a jail term and not a mere fine.
