The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) was launched in the year 2000, in the aftermath of South Africa´s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The aim was to ensure that lessons learnt from South Africa´s transition from apartheid to democracy were taken into account as the nation moved ahead. Today, the Institute helps to build fair, democratic and inclusive societies in Africa through carefully selected engagements and interventions. >>

Media statement: IJR IN SOLIDARITY WITH VICTIMS OF ISRAEL PALESTINE CONFLICT, AND IN SUPPORT OF BDS : 2014-08-08
The IJR would like to express its solidarity with the suffering of those who have lost loved ones, and suffered injury, in the latest round of senseless conflict between Israel and Palestine. The Israeli Defence Force’s military attacks on perceived Hamas strongholds, justified as its right to self-defence, have killed an unacceptably and disproportionately high number of Palestinian civilians, including nearly 100 elderly, more than 200 women (some pregnant) and more than 400 children, and wounded thousands more. In addition, more than 400,000 Gazans have been displaced and billions of dollars worth of infrastructure destroyed. This blatant disregard for the safety and security of the civilian population is an outrage. It is probable too that it breaks a range of international laws.
