In April 2022, the Government of South Sudan launched public consultations for the establishment of the Commission for Truth, Reconciliation and Healing (CTRH). The process was welcomed by government officials, civil society organisations, religious leaders, academia, members of the diplomatic community and development partners, who attended the event.
The outcomes of the consultations will inform the drafting of a bill for the establishment of the CTRH which is one of the transitional justice mechanisms provided for in the Revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS) 2018.
To ensure that reconciliation in South Sudan is driven and owned by the women; that it is survivor-centred and that it addresses all grievances to pave the way for a reconciled and healed South Sudan, the Women’s International Peace Centre in collaboration with CORDAID South Sudan, Search for Common Ground South Sudan, Initiative for Peace Communication and Centre for Inclusive Governance, Peace and Justice held consultative meetings with groups of women leaders in Juba, Yei, Wau and Bor.
