The African Union (AU) has adopted a Transitional Justice Policy—a continental guideline for Member States to achieve sustainable peace, justice, reconciliation, social cohesion, and healing after experiencing mass atrocities. This milestone is the culmination of an eight-year effort by African leaders to produce a policy informed by experiences of African countries with elements that include prioritizing holistic reparations and incorporating traditional and communal forms of reconciliation. MacArthur, in partnership with a New York-based private foundation, supported the effort through The Center for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation and the AU Department of Political Affairs.
