Institute for Justice and Reconciliation
The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) was launched in the year 2000, in the wake 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, inclusive, and democratic societies in Africa through carefully selected engagements and interventions. It contributes to post-conflict stability, good governance, and human security through programs that promote political reconciliation and social and economic justice across Africa. With its base and origin in South Africa, it continues to learn from the South African experience of transition and explores projects and partnerships that will deepen the efforts to build fair, inclusive, and democratic societies in this country, but also the rest of the continent. IJR’s work is increasingly relevant to other global post-conflict societies, and its 2017–2020 strategy builds on the organization’s experience and strengths to engage in a multifaceted way forward on issues of justice and reconciliation.
IJR has since its inception developed expertise in four key methodologies that, if used in an integrated way, become central in driving successful change:
- Producing cutting-edge research and innovative analysis generating new knowledge, insights, and resources
- Hosting critical conversations and dialogues as drivers of transformation
- Establishing networks for justice and reconciliation through training and capacity building
- Communicating key messages to advocate for change
