The Transitional Justice Clinic (TJC) strengthens justice processes for victims and survivors of atrocity crimes in national jurisdictions.


Why the Transitional Justice Clinic?

International justice should be accessible and effective for all victims of international crimes in every country where they live. Yet for victims of atrocity crimes, the promise of international justice is rarely fulfilled.

National practitioners who are willing to investigate and prosecute international crimes in their own courts often lack the support they need to hold the perpetrators accountable.

Through a locally driven, horizontal mentoring process, TJC experts assist national colleagues throughout the investigation and prosecution of international crimes cases, often helping them to do what they thought they could not, and always keeping victims and survivors at the center.

Our Impact

As a result of the TJC ’s interventions,

New pathways to justice are opened for victims where they live;

Victims are empowered through participation in the justice process and related remedies;

National practitioners integrate the knowledge and practical skills necessary to conduct international criminal investigations and prosecutions independently; and

Post-conflict justice processes are strengthened, advancing the fight against impunity.
