About Us

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. >>

HEALING COMMUNITIES, TRANSFORMING SOCIETY: EXPLORING THE INTERCONNECTEDNESS BETWEEN PSYCHO-SOCIAL NEEDS, PRACTICE AND PEACEBUILDING : 2015-03-03

Despite the urgent need for peace building as well as mental health and psycho-social support related interventions in post-conflict societies, the nexus and linkage between these two fields remains under-researched and poorly understood. While both fields contribute vital services to affected communities, their work takes place largely in isolation of one another.

As such, the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation, in partnership with the Netherlands-based War Trauma Foundation will be hosting a three-day conference at the Sunnyside Park Hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa on 6, 7 and 8 May 2015.
