The National Transitional Justice Policy is an overreaching framework of the Government of Uganda designed to address justice, accountability and reconciliation needs of post-conflict Uganda. Uganda was the first country to adopt a Transitional Justice Policy after the adoption of an African Union Transitional Justice Policy.
Transitional Justice is a range of processes and mechanisms associated with society’s attempt to come to terms with a legacy of large-scale past abuses and human rights violations in order to ensure accountability, serve justice and achieve reconciliation. It consists of both judicial and non-judicial processes and mechanisms including prosecution initiatives, truth-seeking, reparations programmes, institutional reform or an appropriate combination.
This policy will serve as an overarching framework that will address justice, accountability and reconciliation needs of post-conflict situations. It will create a holistic intervention in achieving lasting peace and stability.
