About the Authors

The Working Group on Transitional Justice and SDG16+ operates as part of the Justice Action Coalition (JAC), an international policy platform that champions equal access to justice for all and works to close the global justice gap. The Working Group’s 2023 report is one of the JAC’s 10 deliverables in 2023.

Convened by the International Center for Transitional Justice, the Working Group brings together civil society, national governments, regional actors, and international organizations to mobilize support for the 2023 Justice Appeal, which calls for the reestablishment of trust and the renewal of the social contract, by coordinating data and evidence, promoting learning and exchange, and strengthening support for people-centered justice. The Working Group emphasizes the importance of focusing on those who find it hardest to access justice, including victims of massive human rights violations, and examining local and national practices and measures that maximize the value of transitional justice.
